    So I've been looking around online a laptop recently and I haven't found one that fits the specifications I want without having a serious flaw or an absurd price only outdone by Apple. I'd rather not go over $800, but if I find a really nice deal I will. I've seen $600 laptops (sales) fit these specs in the past.

    I'm not that picky about the specs:
    Screen - Anything 14"+ (even 17.3"), prefer 1600x900+ but lower is fine
    CPU - Any Intel IB quad core, HT not necessary
    GPU - Anything better than a GT 610 (yes even *shudder* a Radeon)
    RAM - Meh, whatever, I can replace this
    HDD - Meh, whatever, I can replace this

    And so far I've found squat for a reasonable price. I've checked everywhere that I can think of. I'm actually looking to buy immediately if I can find a nice deal.

    If anyone knows of something that fits, I'm all ears... eyes, whatever.

    I swear I checked their website just hours ago and it didn't have the current sale on. Lenovo seem to rapidly change them and have them up often. I found a shop with a Y580 with the 3630QM and GT 660M (1080p screen) for only $800 but not surprisingly they were sold out.

    As for the current sale the price is still $919 when just 1 year (real) warranty is added and that includes no taxes. Assuming free shipping that's $1038.50. I could pick the lowest model but that saves only $60 for giving up the 1080p screen and the small SSD, not worth it.

    So yeah... dunno if that's worth dropping over a grand on, I'm going to keep looking. If all else fails, Lenovo will have a similar sale next week.
