Hey guy's this is my first time posting here and I'm asking for a little advice. I'm starting off college and I need a laptop for school.
I'm looking for something for casual gamming such as WOW or other steam games. The best gamming laptop I can get for that kind of money. I already have a pretty good desktop so I don't want anything crazy so I'm looking to spend around 500-700 dollars. I'm looking for a decent battery life and something portable if it's lightweight and has a smaller screen then it'd be better. Also if there's any deals for college students it'd be better. So I was wondering what I should lean towards buying. Thanks!

This is $150 over your price range, but I've been pleasantly surprised how cable this machine is: Comes with a GeForce GT 630M and an i7.

Hi Raula

1. I think all the major known brands like HP, Lenovo, Toshiba etc. have students discounts.

2. How portable? Do you prefer more portability or more gaming power?

The best I can think of under 700$ is the HP dv6z-7000 with Radeon 7730M, A6-4400M CPU, 6GB DDR3 and a very good matte FullHD screen - this screen makes it worth:
it would be 705$.

The screen is also the reason I recommend this laptop so much.

HP has an Xbox 360 4GB coupon - you buy 699$+ laptop and get an Xbox 360 4GB for free. You can then sell it:

Thanks alot for that student deal. They were out on the xbox but they gave me 100 off so I picked up this beauty for 650! Thanks guys!
