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. http://shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Lap... (If chosen, I'm upgrading the graphics card to 650m 1G and getting the backlit keyboard).

2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (this has basically the same specs as the HP one above, but it comes with the 650m 2G and it's kinda cheaper).

3. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Y580-i7-3610QM-G... (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.
