I'm looking for any deals you can find that can beat or match:
i5 450m
ATI 5730m 1 GB ddr3
4 GB ram
320 GB HD
Intel CPU Needed
15"
$540 > 588.50 total w/ shipping + tax

I need the laptop to be 15" or less and have comparable specs(better is preferred) also refurbished is an option.

Intel CPU's Only and a 6550 is roughly equal in performance to a 6650 so they are roughly equal but the victory going to the i5 in raw power. :??:  Does no one have an Idea?

Can we ask why? Even in the mobile market, having an Intel CPU will bump the price of the laptop when you're looking for equal performance. Your price range is too small to be that specific. Your graphics performance takes a nosedive when you exchange the AMD CPU (which is just as good) for an Intel.

So I have the best deal then. A i5 @ 2.4 w/ 5730 4gb ram and 320 7.2k hd. I think that since gaming needs a powerful dual core rather than a subpar quad core that is why I'm choosing an intel machine.

If you don't mind the work you can go with one of these, which would smoke your deal... they don't have an OS installed so you'll have to do that and get all the drivers, etc. The company also has a bad reputation being owned by Best Buy but if you can also see past that, you're good: http://www.cowboom.com/product/1012595

I was going to suggest this one for you, but the screen size is bigger than you want. This one is smaller and the closest I could find you the one you found with your requirements.

Sounds like you already found the best option out there.

Thanks but 610m and 6470m are both under powered graphics I really need something that can play games easily. 5730m is powerful enough to play crysis 2 and other games medium-low setting but a 6470m just doesn't have the power.

This is the 15" version of my laptop: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Aspire-Timeline-X-AS5830TG...

I am sold on the weight being as low as it is and the thickness of the laptop being less than 1.25". I need portable, and my 14" version is less than 5lbs and 1.15" thick, which is just about the sweet spot for me.

HP dv6zqe $595

AMD Quad-Core A6-3430MX Accelerated Processor (2.4GHz/1.7GHz, 4MB L2 Cache)
1GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7690M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics

When Radeon Mobility HD 7690M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics is combined in dual graphics with the HD 6620G on the APU, you get Radeon HD 6775G2. Nice boost in some gaming -- some games run better out of dual graphics.

Beat up pretty good on a 5730m

thanks nbelote that nvidia 540m is 10% faster than the 5730, and it has a newer i5 which is also faster. Overall those are the deals i'm looking for thanks!
