Okay, so I've been looking to upgrade my laptop for a couple months now. Although, my student loan money doesn't come in for a couple months so I've been using the time to do a lot of research on laptops. Preferably, I would like to have a laptop that can handle gaming. Though, I'm not gonna play console games on the laptop. Just laptop games, such as Guild Wars 2. Here are the options that I am considering and I will greatly appreciate your guys' input on these laptops.

1. (If chosen, I'm upgrading the graphics card to 650m 1G and getting the backlit keyboard).

2. (this has basically the same specs as the HP one above, but it comes with the 650m 2G and it's kinda cheaper).

3. (Good laptop all around according to specs for a good price, though it is manufacturer refurbished).

So yeah, everyone's input on this thread is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Budget for me is around a grand. A little over or a little under won't really matter. Battery doesn't really matter to me, though I'm not really informed well about batteries. I'm guessing a 6 cell is average with about 5 hours? I'm fine with the 15.6" screen.
