  1. The Lenovo Y580 is by far the best laptop in that price range.
  2. A bit over your budget, but in the top 10 gaming laptops of 2013.

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2410368,00.asp
  3. That is not better than a Y580. First it doesn't have a 1080 screen. Second it has a 650m not the 660m the Y580 has and it's only a 11.6 inch screen.

    This is the laptop you should get.

    $50 cheaper from their site... Free shipping and 1 year free skype premium... if you care about that lol.
  5. Hmm.. And what about the SSD?

    the amazon includes a 16 gig version of one.. is it worth it for $50 ?
  6. 16 gig isn't even enough for OS or ONE game lol... no save your $50.

    Edit: ahh its a 750gb HDD with a 16 GB ssd cache for $50 more vs a 1TB HDD... I would save $50 and get the 1TB.
  7. Oh, k.

    I tought windows 7 didnt use more than the 16 gb.

    Any other laptop recommendation?
