I was thinking of a 15" ish. At the time i was just looking at the cpu and gpu. I forgot to put this, also use Photoshop, ms word and school related. and also play some games like borderlands 1&2, valve games, bioshock, etc.
Check this site often I paid $620 with tax and got a i7 (sandy bridge) 500gb 7200rpm hdd and a 555m (although it's more like a overclocked 550m but I OC'ed it even more). It was new not refurbished but I wouldn't mind getting refurbished. http://outlet.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/outle...
Im planning of waiting for the next coupon. I think im going with dv6z A6-4400M + Radeon 7730M without the Fullhd. but im also looking in other places like http://outlet.lenovo.com that andrewcarr said
