The excellent Lenovo Y580 with a blu-ray player and 500GB 7200RPM HDD. The Y580 has a good build quality, good gaming performance with the GTX 660M and I7, nice glossy 1080p screen with good viewing angles and 91% sRGB color coverage, blu-ray player and 500GB 7200RPM HDD and a backlit keyboard. There is another model with a 5400RPM HDD, 16GB mSSD and no blu-ray, but I think it is less cost effective.

The Y580 can run 4-5 hours surfing the web through WiFi which is quite good. So, all in all, you get a very good package if you want a 15.6″ gaming laptop with a lot of features AND a good battery performance.

More power option, also from Lenovo itself, is currently the Y500. Also, see more recommended gaming laptops under 1000$

Currently there’s a weekly deal for this laptop on lenovo’s site, bringing the price down to $870:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?GroupID=457&Code=20998NU&category_id=AC523278A4F13F27A84F5F5622D1AC7A

However, the monitor is no longer FHD but rather HD (w/ integrated camera). Is it still a good deal or should I wait to get FHD? Thanks!

Hey there,

FYI, I see that microsoft dropped the price to $799. I dont know if there is a catch but im almost pulling the trigger on this! I wanted to wait for thanksgiving because there may be a good laptop deal but this seems like a steal to me! What do you think?
