My father is getting me a new laptop soon and he's asked me which one I would like, so I figured I'd get a bit of perspective on this subject

It needs to be good quality, able to last more than just a couple of years. I'll be using it for school and for university. I do digital art as well, and of course it would be nice if it can handle video games. I know it's best to have a desktop computer but a laptop is and will be much more convenient for me.

If you can recommend one or two that would be a great help

How much is your father willing to spend? Budget plays a huge roll in recommendations.

I've been looking at laptops myself as well. I plan to use mine for light gaming, so naturally my focus is on laptops that can handle games on the level on TF2, Starcraft, and League of Legends. A friend of mine found a sweet deal for me when he was browsing and I thought you might like to be let in on it. Link This laptop is meant a little bit more for gaming, but it could meet your standards.

You could try a Clevo laptop (Sager, Eurocom, etc..), I am using the Sager 8150 currently, and it can run skyrim on 1920x1080, all settings at ultra.

I have an Asus that's caught fire twice and still works, might want to check out what they have

My Lenovo V570 handles Skyrim, BF3, Saint's Row The Third, and every other game I've played on Ultra Quality. It's cheaper than the ASUS from above. I dunno about your area, but literally everyone I know here who has an ASUS laptop has had problems with them. One guy in my class had his trackpad stop working.

Macbooks are pretty good,but pricey.
Brand wise I'd go with toshiba or asus,There both usually in the $500-$1000 area,and most of them in that range have i5's and have pretty good GPU's/Video Cards.Worst comes to worse you can always upgrade video cards later.

Probably no more than $800-$900.

Also, thank you everyone for your recommendations. They're very helpful
