- I7, GT 650M SLI
Now refurbished for $700 which is a good price, since you won’t get this performance with no other laptop for $700 currently. Anyway, consider other options under $1000
Probably the best gaming laptop in this price range in terms of gaming performance to price, including an 1080p screen. You get dual GT 650M GDDR5 GPU, I5-3230M which certainly suffice for gaming, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD and a nice glossy 1080p. This is actually an excellent deal and in terms of performance, you get most of the time a gaming performance between the GTX 670MX and the 675MX, which is excellent, see review.
The battery performance is so-so, but as far as gaming laptop goes – this Y500 has an excellent value per money ratio and I truly suggest buying it.
Even if you don’t need the extra GT 650M – you can pull it out and sell it for $100-$150
