The Velocity Micro Raptor MX40 is an impressive 14-inch gaming laptop that offers a brilliant Full-HD display, dedicated NVIDIA GTX graphics, fast Intel Quad-Core processor and high-quality craftsmanship. The dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti offers an increase in performance over the standard GTX 1050 and will allow you to play any of the current 2017 gaming titles on the market. Though the base model only ships with a 5400rpm hard drive, so you might want to spend the few extra dollars on customizing the Velocity Micro Raptor MX40 and replacing the slower drive with a fast SSD or an SSD and HDD combo.
