yes. Not as the GDDR5 version, but for 800$ it's excellent and the difference is not big

is 660m significantly better than 650m?

the 650m gddr5 and 660m are the same cards basically, only with different core clocks and sometimes memory clocks.
the 650m gddr5 can be overclocked pretty easily - notebookreview have an excellent thread about it

I think they're Gddr3

I am torn between the lenovo y580 and the and this one

Lenovo seems significantly better but it seems that the best retailers are selling it at a significant premium.

The second one also seems to be built by xotic and I am unfamiliar with their brand.

Do you know how to search for the best black friday deals on each of those? I'm looking them up on amazon and newegg but I'm hoping there's a better place to find sales on those laptops.

besides hand picking?
you have to try and search for deals on costco and fry's too - their search is terrible, but still
