Good deal. The only things to knock are the large 17.3" size versus 15.6" or 14" & slightly small size 500gb harddrive. This looks like one of the best deals of the BF shopping season this year. Definitely recommended if you're in the market for an all purpose work/gaming computer. This laptop will normally go for $600-$700, so a savings of $50 to $150.
This is the second straight year that there's not better deals on BF shopping season versus Beginning of School year(Aug/Sept)but this is close!!. More surprise laptop deals may swing around again in Spring time (Jan, Feb, March) and again in Summer (june,July) But always consider buying in Aug,Sept--the best times of year to buy a laptop!
yes 17.3" is out of stock. But you can still get the 15.6" for same price: 15.6" with similar specs & same price>>http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6834310630
Differences are: 6gb ram vs 4gb ram, 1gb GT 635 vs 2gb GT 635, 15.6" 1366x768 vs 17.3" 1600x900; Despite the tradeoffs it's almost the same laptop & still available.

So it's more than adequate, and should play every game on the market (atleast thru the year 2014 & even 2015) at around a decent smooth 35-50FPS with a mix of high settings and some medium low settings like shadow detail and sometimes reducing resolution to 1366x768 while 1600x900 and higher may become a little laggy.
Usually mid/high-end laptops like this have a 3 year PC gaming cycle (First 2 years should be good, with the 3rd year requiring lower settings.)
A GT 635m is a nice step better than last years graphics gt 540m, gt 550,gt 630m, radeon 7670m, 6750m); (I have last years good graphics 6650m and still get great gaming results; probably will be set thru 2014, so a 3 year cycle for me 2011-2014 and the gt 635m should be good for 2012-2015;

I got this computer the first time it was on sale and I am very pleased with it. I'm able to play Skyrim on High settings at about 30 FPS. It's a pretty big laptop, but actually not as heavy as I thought it might be.
Does it worth to spend $130 more to get an upgraded version of this laptop with i7-3632QM, 6GB ram and 750GB HD?
It's minimal but up to you, I would. I mean playing games and all, it pulls more on graphics power over the processor, but the quad-core i7 future-proofs yourself and it adds performance. The $130 upgrade is a good choice in this case. Not too expensive.
