The closest I know of is the Sager NP3250 which will run you $658 with a i5, 4GB, GeForce GT 520M and 1366x768 glossy screen.

Though I recommend stepping up to a Sager NP5160 which will run you $726 with a i5, 4GB, GeForce GT 540M and 1600x900 matte screen.

In either case you can and should upgrade to a i7 for $70 though your choice.

Just keep in mind the GT 520/540 are middle mobile graphic cards.

Upper mobile graphic cards such as the GT 460 are more desirable but start in the $1,172 range.

Hello andyli625;

If you keep your eye out for sales you can grab a Acer Aspire AS5742G for around $600
Core i3 380M 2.53Ghz CPU, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ GT 540M graphics.

The GT 540M should get you medium (or a bit more) graphics in many games.

Radeon HD 6650M is the only good graphics card option up there.
Radeon HD 5650 is a notch below that and GeForce 310M / Radeon HD 4330 are very week gaming cards.
