    how does the 8970 compare to the 770m? is the bottleneck large enough, to make the 770m outperform the 8970?
  4. For this price range, I would try to make sure that it has an SSD.

    Okay... Just try to get one with Haswell (for better power consumption) and an SSD (for quite fast boot times). :)

    was about to buy it, and it just sold out..... im now looking for good gaming laptops under 1300ish range
  10. its beaten by all 3 but is great at 1080p but if you want to spend the whole 1.5k u can go with something else but not sure much out there with 4th gen intel and a high end gpu and other features in that price
  11. You will get a better deal with the y510 if you buy from the Lenovo site.
