I am looking for a laptop deal. I know some makers run 'sales' sometimes.
I am looking for the very best gaming laptop that I can buy that is between $500 up to 1050.
Best combo of memory, processor and GPU.
I need one that can play Guild Wars 2 beautifully
I will be using USB kb, mouse, N52 and cooler pad

If I can get a comparable laptop that is lower in price, say like 750 that is close enough to a 1k one that I will not notice the difference I would prefer that.



I was looking at

and

but if anyone has any other companies with cheaper prices of comparable or better quality please let me know.


I appreciate any help you guys can give me. :( 
Thanks in advance !

btw I do not care about size other than prefer it be 15 inches. I do not care about weight. So i dont care how thick or heavy it is.

This laptop will get heavily used btw. Average of 32 hours a week. I will be using a cooler pad for it.

GW2 pretty much requires a quad core i7. Get a 1080p screen, i7 and a 650m + (or 7850m ish). How do the lenovo y500 and y580 look to you?

Is lenovo any good?


They are fine. You can find several out there right now in your price range. I'm in the same boat, I've got plenty of money but I am being a cheapskate and am going to try to wait it out for them to be under $700 as they do pop up occasionall price range under 7 bills.

At this price range you can also look at the dell inspiron 15r and 17r... 3630qm or 3610qm with GT650m... 8 to 12 gb ram.... Either 1tb drive or 750gb hybrid.... Windows 7 or 8.
