It's also okay to be bulky, but not 50 pounds or anything . For the most part it will just be resting in my lap as I'm on the couch or in bed or whatever, so it doesn't have to be ultra thin or anything.

I do hope that it would stay cool even under pressure of 1080p gaming. I don't want another laptop that likes to shut off all the time because it gets too hot. I don't mind undervolting the processor a bit, but I'd just prefer something to work right out of the box if possible.
No matter what laptop you get, you should really use a laptop cooler when gaming.

This is the one I have, highly recommend it.

And undervolting the processor defeats the purpose of buying laptop with a good CPU. You want it to run as fast as possible when gaming. In fact, many people overclock their laptop CPUs and graphics cards for this purpose.
