Still a pretty good deal for some light gaming, might pick one up.
I have yet to see a Lenovo consumer-class machine with anything but 1366x768 or 1920x1080 screens. There are some business line laptops with 1600x900, but integrated graphics. It's crazy that Lenovo has so many different models in the marketplace right now, but they're all more or less clones of each other. If it normally retails for $800 or less you're looking at 1366x768, more than that and there's usually a 1920x1080 option if not standard.
Thanks for that. It's frustrating how hard it is to find affordable 15.6" laptops with 1600x900 or better.
It depends on what your definition of "affordable" is. Every once in awhile you'll get a Y580 for $850 or so with a nice screen, but it's so big and heavy that it can double as a boat anchor. Samsung Series 7 Chronos is available for $1000 (regular price) with a 1600x900 screen. Only issue is that at that price it should be 1080p.
I need to buy a computer right away, and I keep seeing references to "good for gaming." I'm not a gamer; I'm a freelance sports photographer. If it's good for a gamer, does that mean it's probably good for basic photo editing too? My photo edits are fast and simple--a batch of 50 photos done in an hour or so for web publishing. I just need something that can handle several programs open at once (Word, Picasa or Photoshop Elements, web browser, network window, Realtime Player).
