Yeah, the only complaint is that they do run a bit hot while gaming so it's best to buy a laptop cooler. Then again the Y560 does come with a HD 5730 which tends to run a bit hot for a mobile GPU.

Hi there,

You should also check out the Alienware M15x. It is a power gaming laptop with an i7 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and NVIDIA GT240M GeForce 512MB graphics. This laptop, like most gaming laptops, will have a limited battery life because of the specs that gaming requires. You could look into getting a battery pack.

Cheers,

But,M15x with GT 240M doesn't perform quite good(compared to notebooks like the Lenovo I posted which has HD 5730M).
M15x w/5850M is a decent choice though,but it's out of OP's price range.

You're in luck, newegg has one on sale that is EXACTLY what you're looking for. It's over $200 below your budget and it is definitely for gaming because it has an AMD Phenom II X4 P920 but more importantly, it has an ATi Mobility Radeon HD 5730. At $780, it is an AMAZING price for a gaming laptop! :sol:
