Any laptops with dedicated cards for $500-550?

So I am planning on getting a laptop for $400-500, but would go up to $550 if I had to. So far the best setup I have found for that price range was an i3 380M, 4GB DDR3, 320GB HDD, and Intel HD Graphics. I was just wondering if there are any laptops with dedicated cards for $500-550, or if that is the best I am going to get in the $400-550 price range.

I am mostly going to do internet, but I would like to be able to play WoW, SC2, and some Steam games on low/medium settings with 20-30 FPS. Is that possible with the Intel HD Graphics? Or are there better computers I can get for $500-550?

Right now I am looking at the http://www.amazon.com/A52F-XA3-15-6-Inch-Versatile-Entertainment-Laptop/dp/B004RCNS4M/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1306462681&sr=1-7

Would a custom HP g6t laptop with 3GB DDR3, 512MB 6470M, and i3 380M be worth the $70 more than the ASUS?

    let me point this out that for $500 and under range, you won't find many laptops with a dedicated card that would be able to run SC2 on medium.
    those specs are pretty similar, 6470 is still not a gaming card, but I think it would be better than intel HD, but again, without the model number for that intel HD it's hard to say for sure.

    No Way Man, Stay away from Amazon.
    Right Now Asus and Toshiba Direct are good places to buy. But, Wait for School Blowouts...real ones,
    Check the Hierarchy of the graphics cards, and look for midrange gpu.
    Im trying to find one for computer science and Minecraft, but Im cheap and only want to spend 400.
    so far I havent found anything.
