My sister in law has tasked me with sending her some options for a laptop for her son (11 years old).

His primary uses will be school work, and gaming, so...mainly gaming.

Games he is interested in playing are: Roblox, Gary's mod, Minecraft, ravens field, league of legends and counter strike...maybe fortnite (he changes his mind often)

Looking to send her a few options, ideally with 8-16GB of RAM, and a dedicated graphics card. Mainly looking at 15" options, as I think 13" is too small to enjoy gaming, and 17 become to big for him to bring to school and friend's houses.

Ideally, would like some opinions in the 500-1000 range, might be some wiggle room, but she didn't give a full budget, just said she will have family chip in to help. HE is 11, so he doesn't need a $2k gaming laptop in my mind.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ideas:
HP Pavilion 15.6" Gaming Laptop [walmart.com] - Sale Price: $499 | Reg. Price: $899

Also saw this but it's pricey for an 11 y/o:
Legion Y540 $779.99 (11/28)
8GB RAM, 1TB 7200 RPM + 256GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1660 Ti

IdeaPad L340 Gaming $699.99 (11/29)
8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1050

Legion Y740 $1,199.99 (12/2)
16GB RAM, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1660 Ti
I think these 3 are at Lenovo.
