eg.common regular laptops like Asus i7 2670qm GT540 for $600; probably this year it will be Intel 3rd gen i5 or i7 with GT 630 or GT640 for $600.
(I've been following budget friendly priced laptops like this primarily the past year, instead of the amazing high end tech around $850-$3000; we need an expert to shead some advice who routinely purchases this type of laptop in the past 5 years.)

Most laptop sales I see are for under $500, so I have no real reference point on more expensive ones. How does this laptop look value wise? Can I find better for less or is it a good deal?

NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 2GB GDDR3 may still be a tad weak for a serious gaming laptop, due to the GDDR3 speed. This tends to get picked on by die hard gamers. They always want GDDR5 vram or else it's a big disappointment. A GTX660m has faster GDDR5 vram so I'd probably try my best having this gpu at a minimum for $1000 system ....it just depends on how picky each person is and what other features are more important to be configured in the overall package.
Edit: A Great deal came 24 hrs after I made this post:
