  1. Core i5-2450M 2.50 GHz CPU and 15.6" 1920x1080 anti-glare LCD w/ Radeon HD 7690M XT for $800 is very good deal right now.
    And if you qualify for the free Xbox 360 and it's something you want - no reason to wait.

    That free XBox 360 offer isn't only available on the MS store. But you might have found the best value for a laptop with some gaming ability under $1000.

    NewEgg Free XBox 360
  2. Thats actually a very nice deal. Its a shame that the HDD is only 5400 RPM but other than that looks nice.
