System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (HL2 Source games, L4D2, Minecraft), school work, watching movies/tv shows
Parts Not Required: Keyboard/ mouse/ monitor (It's a laptop)
Additional Comments: I customized this laptop on HP, and so far is seems to be the best for my money. I would like some feedback from you guys to see what you think about this rig, if its actually worth it, and gaming ready. Thanks!

It will be decent for a laptop, about the level of a GTX 560m.
the 650m can play battlefield 3 at 1366x768 resolution at about high settings, lower demanding games can probably max.
Utilizing the 9 cell battery, and windows "Power Saver" option, how much battery life can I achieve on a full charge? Of course I won't be gaming in this mode, this is simply for when I'm at school.
My 6 cell batt laptop, with all those power-saving options, would last me up to 2-3 hours per full charge. You should be able to achieve more than 4 hours easily, especially since newer gen tech are more power-efficient.
