Thanks very much, you pointed me in the right direction!
I ended up purchasing a Refurbished HP Pavilion DV6-6023TX 15.6" for $580!
Intel Core i5-2410M Dual Core @ 2.30GHz Turbo Boost to 2.90GHz
Radeon HD-6770M 1GB
1 year warranty
Even though I'v read the asus quad processor would have been better for gaming I could not find something at this low a price. I thought this was a damn good find.
