Best Gaming Laptop Under $2,000

I know this is the worst place to come for this but I just wanted to check for a friend. As much as I try to convince him to get a desktop, he doesn't bother to listen to me. What would be the best gaming laptop for under $2,000?

Auros X7 (bit out of budget)

Gigabyte P35G v2

Lenovo Y50

Just a couple of suggestions.

How exactly have you tried to convince him?
