Are there any gaming laptops that have the hotswap feature available? By hotswap I mean for just about everything. Like...no integrated graphics. I am on my way to upgrading a laptop of mine. My budget is probably no more than $1,000. Brands to recommend? Thanks.

well what you are refering to is NOT hotswap. What you are refering to is "Discrete." and i am not aware of any, and if you want to get a decent gaming laptop $1000 wont quite cut it.

Never understand the point of a gaming laptop... not particularly good as a gaming system... and not particularly good at being a laptop (size, weight, battery life)

Hey there, Caelan, first of all, hotswapping is action of changing a piece of server hardware without turning off the server itself (you could damage a PC if you did that).

Second, laptops are not the best when it comes to gaming or upgrading hardware (due to the pricing of parts and compatibility issues). Still, if you want a good gaming laptop for 1k or less, here's a list. http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-m14x-r2/pd Alienware is shunned by the online community due to it's pricing, but I think that an i5 processor, 8 gig of ram and 1gb graphics card is more than enough for at least a year or two (considering the fact that you can upgrade almost every part in it) Perhaps an ASUS P53SJ http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=asus+P53SJ

Anyway, just look for decent parts that are not INTEL or RADION integrated.
