Hello there,
I've been thinking of getting a new laptop to replace my old one for quite some time now.

My budget is, as stated in the title, just about $600. I could go for a little higher, if it's really worth it.
Around 15" or so for the screen would be fine for me.
1366x768 resolution would be proper, but if 1080p fits in the budget, it would be awesome.
I need a portable laptop that I can play some games on decently.
Some games I play are: League of Legends, Starcraft II, Dota II, Diablo III, MW3, Left 4 Dead 2, and some others.
I also want to be able to do a little bit of photo and video editing from time to time, so I want a laptop that would be capable of handling that.
As for storage, I believe at least 500GB would be enough since I have an external 3TB HDD.
Some places I consider buying a laptop from is NCIX, Newegg, and Tigerdirect
I plan to keep the laptop for at least a good 3 or 4 years.
A regular DVD drive would be fine, but if Blu-ray is possible, then sure!
It doesn't really matter which brand, just as long as it would do its purpose.
I'm in Canada, so please. $600 CANADIAN dollars is the budget.
Refurbished would be fine.

Well, any recommendations?

Thanks for the link :) 
It's 20$ more for the Canadian website, but that's expected.

Yes, the GT 540m is weaker than 6750. I am not sure you are ok with refurb.
