Just be sure that the laptop has a discrete GPU or, in lower priced units, an APU.

What's your budget? (Roughly)

The Lenovo is a good choice for bang for your buck, good size, great chassis, excellent CPU and GPU.
The Asus is a beast of a machine, it has a higher price, but it's also a lot more power behind that machine. The great features about this system are the dual HDD bays, and the ability to add more RAM, on top of the powerful CPU + GPU combo. It does have a bigger screen as well, along with great cooling.
