Going to be honest here, you left out the key info of battery life. It really determines if you want a gt 540m which would be the best discrete gpu you could get, or integrated graphics for longer battery life. I would say get a laptop with a gt 540m for $700 and an i5-2410m and be happy.

edit: looks like you can't get a sandy bridge processor with the gt 540m in that price range so the laptop you picked is a good choice.

try is one but http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220951

but i would need to look in to it further lots of other nice laptops out there. As for acer i would never never buy a acer again in my life. I had one before not only did it take over 3 months to get the freaking acer but with in a week of having it the hdd die so i called acer they said that i would be cover under the warranty but they would only cover it once. So i send it to them takes them 6 months to get the laptop back but that isnt even the funny part i get it back and i go to turn it on it on it wont boot in to windows. Now to my dismay i call acer again and tell them my problem and they say its not under warranty any more and they cant help me so i fight and fight and the only i get out of it is a were sorry and a acer t-shirt so i think to myself what happened to my 700 bucks and the sad realization is that it went down the drain. Ever since then ive hated acer but this ony one person story it just a warning though. Shop around till you find a good one that you like and isnt acer lol.
