I'm assuming since you aren't very familiar with PC technology and you are altready planning on buying a second computer you have had your old one for about 2 years. Now that probably means that it is not a very high end computer and has an intergrated graphics card (a poor one to simplify). That would mean that most laptops would be able to function just as well. If you want a much better experience I would suggest spending ~700$ and getting a laptop with dedicated graphics card. If your budget is a bit tighter you are in luck since futureshop at the moment has a sale on a very good price for performance laptop - http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/id/10161420
Hope I helped

Obviously we need to know what the graphics capability on your desktop is, and find a laptop to match. Be advised that if you're looking for a high-powered gaming laptop, you'll likely pay more than you did for your desktop. Certainly there are laptops available that will conquer gaming, but it is usually a good idea to consider other things as well, such as size, portability, and battery life.
