Help on budget gaming laptop solution!

So i need a budget gaming laptop under 600, capable of running games from minecraft-skyrim (most intentse game ill ever play) and currently I found 2 options. What should I go with?

Acer i5 with 720m 2gb (reviews said VERY SLOW SPD AND BAD TOUCHPAD until u upgrade drivers, thats a big concern for me)

Asus AMD quadcore with discrete gpu, 1080p and backlit (refurbished and okay battery life - tahts my concern :/)
http://www.amazon.com/Asus-N56DP-DH11-15-6-Inch-Laptop/dp/B009AF183Y/ref=pd_ybh_5


I play games only on the weekends, and when I do, its about ~6 hours a day. On weekdays I use it to research and type essays. If you guys have any other better suggestions (new or refurbished) that is under 600 or close enough, then please recommand it.

    R700VJ it would be better due to the graphics are much faster and the i5 is as well

    youd get better frames as shown by the direct x 11 bench which is what games run on

    and the higher clock speed the U i5 are designed for low power consumption but they suffer it in performance

    dont get mixed up with 720m and 635m
    the 635m is about 10-15 percent quicker then the 720m
