Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 (59359560) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI 2GB 15.6" Windows 8

Pros:

everything everyone else has said about this laptop is true. Love this thing, i has handled the below list of games at high/ultra high settings:
GW2, METRO 2033, The Witcher 1&2, Dead Island, Crysis 2.

Win-8 is not bad. If you do your research, you can default to a classic Win-7 look. There are 1000's of tutorials on you tube.

Cons:

The mouse pad sucks! The mouse pad sucks!
This had to be said twice to emphasis the suckyness of the mouse pad. (gaming I use as mouse {DUH}, but I also use this as a laptop, in my lap, topping with it) It does not have webpage scroll option (where you drag you finger on the edge of the mouse pad to scroll up and down on web pages) The left and right mouse button area is used as part of the mousepad. So if you are trying to click on stuff, the pointer moves. I have all my settings on small to fit more stuff on the screen, so this is a problem when my [X] box is small and the pointer moves away from it when i try to click.

Oh My Stars... the fingerprints - this is tests my patients to the max with fingerprints!!! I might just spray paint the lid of this thing to keep me sane.

Other Thoughts:

i have yet to need a CD drive, i use origin and steam for my games, and most everything you can download online now. I predict in 2-3 years, laptops will do away with the CD Drive. If you are torn between giving up your CD drive or not, For gaming (as what this was designed for) you dont need one.
