Budget gaming-ish laptop

Hey all. I'm in the market for a laptop that can play games (but not necessarily a gaming laptop). I have a desktop that can run pretty much anything, so I'm really just looking for a portable option that can run some low-demand games (e.g. WoW, Starcraft) and maybe (though not necessarily) some FPS's like Mass Effect or Borderlands. I'm not picky about having to turn the settings on a game down if that's what it takes to get a good framerate, as this won't be my primary gaming PC.

I'm also wondering whether it would be worth it to go with an SSD. I'm not that concerned with storage (I'll only be using this for gaming, no file storage) so I'd be willing to go with a pretty small SDD if it meant better performance and longer life. Target price is under $1,000, but the lower the better.

Thanks in advance.

The only laptop I can suggest in that budget is the lenovo Y580. with a full hd screen.

I would suggest the one with the 500GB HDD and the i7 3610QM. for 900. Lenovo is always on sale. always around 1k so don't feel like you have to buy now.
