Ugh. I just pulled the trigger on this laptop, on sale at BB for $399 (I'll pick it up later today): http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+K...t=A8&cp=12&lp= What I like about it, besides the price, is the following: -Discrete graphics (AMD 7640g) -Weight (5.5 lbs, oy my shoulders) -Windows 7 (Can't stand Win8) Basically, I'd like to sit on my couch with a decent laptop, play new games at decent, playable settings. I'm gonna swap out the HD for an SSD I have hanging around, and double the ram to 8 GB. My question is this: I can't put down more than $500 right now. Can I do better than this, proc speed/gaming wise, keeping it around 5-5.5 lbs, around $500? Or is this BB laptop a decent deal, and should I stick with it? Thanks in advance, peeps. Appreciate the advice.
