Well, here is my opinion on that. There is no such thing as a good gaming notebook (laptops should NEVER be used on the lap so I prefer to say notebook).
The reason there is no such thing as a good gaming notebook is simple really. Notebooks are very powerful, proprietary computers jammed into tiny boxes. Gaming is about the most demanding task we can ask of our computers. As such, heat management is a major issue. Full size desktops computer cases with multiple large case fans are challenged to provide enough cool air flow through the case to keep the components inside cool during serious gaming. There is no way a tiny notebook case can support or provide that cooling capability.
PC cases can easily be opened by the normal user to expose the interior for easy and thorough
cleaning of heat trapping dust. Notebooks cases are proprietary in nature and do not allow normal users to open the cases for thorough cleaning - so heat trapping dust buildup is inevitable.
The result is notebook/mobile CPUs, designed with special thermal protection features, in conjunction with notebook motherboards, regularly toggle down in speed to prevent thermal damage.
That's just the nature of notebooks - in spite of what their marketing weenies would like us to believe, they do NOT make good gaming machine, nor do they make good "desktop replacements".
So I realize you didn't want to hear any that, but I don't give my advice without giving my opinion. I note the following SWTOR System Requirements
are a good place to start.
