Lenovo recently dropped the price on their Y410P laptops, now has a base price of $1299 with $470 off, dropping the final price to $829, free standard shipping. Be sure to use coupon code "IDEADOORBUSTER".
This has been in this price range for a while. Good specs but wasn't impressed with mine - bulky, glossy screen, and most annoying that screen cannot be tilted beyond a certain angle due to hinges. Makes it difficult to view when holding on lap.
With a stellar matte screen, the only shortcoming of this model is its flimsy touchpad, easily overcome by using a mouse.
600 was the price of that Toshiba one that had a crappy TNS panel, all faded images, a subpar keyboard, and it was just as heavy. So I'm thinking eighty bucks isn't that much to ask.
Great specs, just wish the HDD was 7200 RPM otherwise it is stellar.
You can easily buy your own and install it. It's quite upgradable. But don't complain about the whirring and heat from the 7200 RPM.

I like how lenovo made this laptop base price at $1299 with $470 off. I bet it is just to make people "think" they're really getting a good deal. but anyways, i dont consider this a gaming laptop unless it has dual vents.
I currently have a Y500 and love it. Yes it is a big laptop and a bit on the heavy side. If you're looking for a more "portable" laptop that is smaller but has the same power for this price, good luck. Doubt you'll find much apart from MacBook's in the $1300+ range.
If you can deal with the weight and size, than definitely get this laptop. For the price, you will not have a problem running anything you throw at it.
