Only reason my brother bought a laptop is because he joined the Air Force and a desktop is just not an option. Compared to his old desktop, the ability for his laptop to play games is pitiful.
Anything new for $500 isn't going to be playing many games. For some reason, last year's high end laptops tend to sell for something like 1/2-1/3 of their original cost used on ebay. I just watched an asus g73 go for like $450 the other day, and that's definitely a pretty decent gamer as far as laptops go.
