I'm looking for a laptop that is somewhat portable (Doesn't have to be very)
15" , some gaming capabilities, i haven't played games in some time and don't play that much but would like to play stuff like Diablo3/stracraft2...

Also something that doesn't heat up to much and has some battery life.

The Y500 is on sale on the Lenovo site for $879.

It has I7
8GB ram
GT650m GPU with 2GB
1080 screen
1 TB drive with 16GB ssd

It has a ultrabay so you can buy a 2nd GPU if needed. Also on sale for $137

One GPU plays most new games on med to ultra. the 2nd GPU will allow you to play all of the new games on high or ultra.
