  1. Lenovo y580 is the only one i can think of off the top of my mind that fits your reqs. (except that i got 1080p version for $900, and that might top out your budget.)

    I have one; its good, but chunky, and max battery life is between 3.5 and 4 hrs surfing (less if video watching)

    Also note that they always have sales on. They aren't really sales unless you can get 1080p for under ~950, 720p for under 850

    y500 has gt 650m, not as good as gtx 660m in y580. also note that there are lots of other laptops out there.
  2. Awesome laptop but does it run games fast?
  3. The y500 has the ultrabay. you can get a 2nd GPU for $137 and run GT650m SLI when needed. Which is faster than the GTX660.
