Amazing gaming laptop + Budget priced

Lenovo IdeaPad - 15.6" - Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3230M (2.60GHz) - Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI - 6 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (Y500 (59359560) )
Lenovo IdeaPad - 15.6" - Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3230M (2.60GHz) - Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI - 6 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (Y500 (59359560) )

Pros: Amazing graphics performance, easy to upgrade, runs Windows 8 extremely well, and great speaker sound!

Cons: After adding an SSD it can be a pain to get the drive recognized to install onto but can be done once you do some research on the internet prior.

Overall Review: Why are you still debating? Get this now. :)

Amazing!

Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDAT120GB-V

Pros: Super easy to install once I found a screw within my laptop I could scavenge, small size, and immense performance.

Cons: Only negative is due to my Lenovo Y500 needing to be coaxed to recognize this drive through BIOS to install Win8 cleanly

Overall Review: Make sure to read up on forums for help if you have a Lenovo Y500

Cheap performance
