im pretty sure he is against refurb'd comps. and he wants as big of screen as possible, he wants a lot of stuff for nothing.
You can definitely buy a gaming laptop for less than $1000. If he wants a new one, that's harder. There was an Acer with a 5650, and i7 dual on Amazon a couple of days ago for $500.

You could easily buy a Gateway FX with a 1200p screen, a 9800M, room for 2HDDs, for around $750 used, and use the rest of the money to buy some SSDs.

And plus, nowhere does he say gaming laptop, just a laptop capable of playing games.

For new, a HP Envy 15 can be found for $950 that has a 5830m that should be able to play anything you toss at it.
