For watching movies any laptop will do, although you might prefer one witht a screen resolution of 1920x1080. For serious gaming, you need a gaming laptop and those are (much) more expensive. So I'm confused about what you want.

There's a lot of options but focus yourself in the RAM capacity and the hard drive space. Lenovo came with some kind of phishing software. Heads up for that.
