|WinniW||Does it worth to spend $130 more to get an upgraded version of this laptop with i7-3632QM, 6GB ram and 750GB HD?|

Anytime you can get a good graphic card like this around 2nd class level, then you will be set for playing latest games at reasonable settings at 30FPS for atleast 2 years (& maybe longer)...
But of course 1st level graphics like GT 560m etc will improve on smoothness and FPS at an additional $200 to $500 more (the price of 2 of these laptops).

Check youtube for specific sample gaming results on a setup with this graphic card.
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;

|skintigh||My son wants a laptop for playing minecraft and call of duty. Would this thing cut it? If not, what graphics or other hardware would you recommend? Thanks.|

1. 4GB stick in one slot. Ramaxel PC3-12800 ram (RMT3160ED58E9W-1600). I bought 2x4G sticks at PC3-10600. Debating now whether I should get one 8GB stick instead
2. Overall satisfied with the laptop. Was worried about the flimsy screen but it was pretty good. Not a fan of cutekey since I like Thinkpad keyboard better.
Installing world of warcraft now ... will see how that plays out.

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.

Actually not. The number one selling point for this low-medium budget Lenovo is the video card. 2GB dedicated video card vs HD Graphics 4000.

this would have been cool. Backlit keyboard and under $500
if the 15" version of this lenovo had backlit keyboard it would be perfect.

|chris00cm||It's a pretty nice graphics card for a Laptop. Better than the Intel 4000. For $550, not a bad price. Add some RAM to the computer and it's a really nice machine.|

QUOTE=atoneapone;55485048]The big 17.3" laptop was definitely a deal! I think the 15.6" is still available and a worthy deal if you must have the GT 635 graphics (I actually prefer 15.6" and 14" for a little easier portability).
15.6" with similar specs & same price>>http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...683431063
(You could always connect it up to a nice 19 to 23" LED LCD monitor when at home if you need extra screen size). Or just wait: maybe it will come back in stock.[/QUOTE]
I don't mind the large size of the 17 inch since I normally carry a backpack with me. I'd also prefer that screen size and resolution since I won't be able to hook it up to an external monitor most of the time. Thanks for the heads up though.
