Hey guys, this laptop has finally gone back down in price! It was $549 on blackfriday, but you wont find that for a while, especially for a 17.3 inch with a 2GB dedicated GT635M! It will push hi-rez easy!

lenovo IdeaPad G780 (59347664) Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M(2.50GHz) 17.3" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD DVD±R/RW NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M [newegg.com]

Price: $599

4GB Memory 500GB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M
Windows 8
DVD±R/RW
1600x900 pixels

The only down side I see is the 4GB of RAM, but anyone with smarts would usually upgrade the RAM anyways.

Happy shopping! - Please ADD Repz if you like the deal or if you think I'm hot or whatever..

If you are willing to sacrifice some other specs to get the 1920x1080p rezo... you can shop for a Sony Vaio-E series.. their basic package with Full HD 1080p screens is sitting around $650. (+Tax, Free Shipping)

i5 3210M
17.3" 1920x1080p
over 7lb's
horrible battery life (2.5 hours at best)
Intel HD 4000
320GB HDD (5400rpm)
4GB Memory
HD Webcam
Backlit KB (that's a +)
and.... FREE Blu-Ray Upgrade with purchase (another +)


Maybe this could suit your needs for that budget. You sacrifice some stuff in comparison to OP's deal (namely a dedicated GFX card, bigger drive, battery life, etc).. but you atleast get your 1080p and Blu-Ray! Wink
What's the general feedback on entry-level Vaio units? Reviews on this one are scarce. Sony has some reliability issues with lower-end laptops, don't they?

This is tempting. RAM can be upgraded and a dedicated card added pretty cheaply, and portability is not an issue with me.

I tried looking up reviews for the above mentioned.. particularly from notebookreview.com but couldn't find any good ones for this particular model 171290x..

..And am reluctant to even pass out any opinions on this particular laptop of the E series line.. (was just looking for a 1080p latpop for blackrose when she was unhappy with it's rez for around $600)

I couldn't find much for the model itself but there are a lot of reviews for the E-series.. and the complaints are typically the same for the entire series. You can get better performance at the same price point through other manufacturers.. but I still haven't found a Lenovo/Asus/Acer etc 17.3" 1080p screen for anywhere near $650. (-tax).. I prefer Asus/Lenovo though anyway.. and would rather save and dish out the extra $$$ to get better specs.
