i5, integrated graphics only, 720p seems like a pretty poor deal at $500

Hopefully we'll get better as we get more ads!

Same. I'm not even looking for anything GOOD, just DECENT.

I don't care if i have to play the game on low settings, i don't need fancy, shiny graphics. Would be nice to play DayZ on the lowest settings.

We aren't talking about the cheapest laptop. We want the best value. I need a gaming laptop with at least 640M graphics. $800 for the Lenovo was a good deal, but too much for me Frown
