Default Looking for advice on new gaming laptop

My current laptop is starting to get a bit old, so I'm looking for a new one, and advice would be greatly appreciated. Here's the specs for the one I have now:

ASUSTeK Computer inc.
ASUS Notebook G1 series
Windows Vista
Intel(R)Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz 2.20 Ghz
RAM: 3.00 GB
32 bits
Nvidia GeForce 8600m GT 256 mb

I'd be willing to pay at most about 1000 euros, so does anyone know if there's something on the market that fits that price and is as great an upgrade as possible to the one I have now?

Dell and HP suck, try building your own or (if you don't have the necessary skills) have a friend/family member do so.

Personally though, I only game on my laptop because I don't have the budget to get a high end gaming desktop alongside a low end work laptop.

Alienware is also overpriced and has terrible customer support. If you're going to buy a gaming anything, it's better built from scratch.

I know you said laptop, but i would honestly recommend building a desktop. I got a laptop just over 2 years ago and i realized i made a mistake.
