This is amazing. 1 of the best Y500 offers I've ever seen, if not d best.

These deals for the y500 are sooo tempting, I'd jump all over it if it had a matte screen and opitmus for single card configs. Though I haven't seen what one of these look like in person either so the glossy screen they have might rock.

Not sure if it has a 750m or a 650m. Tech specs say 650m while the model highlights say 750m. Well according to the gpu benchmarks, there is only a minor bump in performance in the 750m. 1346 for the 750m and 1306 for the 650m.

If I didn't have to pay tax I would buy this. $958 after tax for me. Talked to a rep and asked if I could get out of it (I'm a student, maybe an extra discount to offset) but not possible.

Ridiculous how much cheaper this is than various "high-end" gaming configs elsewhere. As someone else mentioned this does NOT have optimus enabled (can't switch off the discrete gfx) so battery life is bad.

I own and use an HP ENVY dv6-7214nr and it had the same Intel Core i7 3630QM 2.4GHz. It's great, can handle anything I throw at it. Gaming, video editing, web browsing, whatever. Only time I have seen the CPU at 99-100% usage is when I am exporting/rendering video in my video editing software. So it's a very good CPU.

With these specs, this laptop will overheat like a bitch.

I rather get the G series Asus laptops

Is this true for this laptop? Any can confirm this? Looking into getting this for some school work and maybe some gaming if possible.
