Acer Aspire V3
Acer isn't well known for gaming laptops, but the refreshed V3 hopes to change that perception. The Aspire V3-772G is pretty much what you expected from a portable gaming rig -- hefty (7 pounds), big screen (17.3 inches), and the latest hardware -- at a reasonable price. The $1,099 model includes both the new quad-core Core i7-4702MQ Haswell CPU and Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 760M graphics, which should provide superior performance and battery life over previous gaming notebooks.
