I have been looking at many desktop replacement laptops. What type should I get?

I have been looking at many desktop replacements. It will mostly stay around the house, so a 16-17 inch would be nice, though maybe you have other ideas? Here is a list of what i will be using it for:-Essay writing on word, using Microsoft office-Web browsing, watching HD you tube videos-Downloading music, listening to music on iTunes, same goes for films-just generally using iTunes, so maybe some decent speakers and sound system-probably most important when choosing, playing heavy gameson the games topic, games like modern warfare 3, battlefield 3, and elder scrolls v skyrimthis means a good graphics card, good processor, etc.. I looked at a couple of alienwares, but buying one would be overkill, i am not a hardcore gamer, just like to play a fair bit. I am NOT interested in a Mac, or any apple products. My budget is probably 800 euro and below, so 1,000 dollars, 700 pounds. Things like a camera/microphone are nice, but optional. Bluetooth is probably a must, as is a CD drive, and a few usb ports. Obviously WiFi is a must have. Because it's a desktop replacement, weight isn't too important, but hopefully not over 10Ibs. i know a bit about computers, though I haven't really studied it. Thanks in advance. If I'm missing any vital info, if you tell me, I'l get back to you with the needed information.

    For that price and to play those games you’re best off looking for something with an i5 or Phenom II 955 processor, and GPU along the lines of a GeForce GTX 560m or dual 460m in SLI, or a Radeon HD 6970M.
