The Y500 looks so nice and will have good performance on mainstream AAA titles. But many of the less known titles will have problems with SLI so there you won't be able to unleash full power.

The acer doesn't look that nice but has a 760m, equivalent of a 670m which is pretty good for a laptop at that price. It will be the most reliable in providing high fps cause it is a single card. Always safer than two cards, especially in laptops.

They Y580 is a solid performer but a bit thick and heavy. It has a 660m which is not that bad but we area year further down the road so the 760m for the same price as the 660m? Go for the 760m of course if you are a gamer.

Just check notebookcheck.net and they rank the 650m SLI around 8% above 670m if you can use the 2 GPUs. In games that can't use it, which there are a lot of, you will be stuck with a 650m which is a tier below the 660m and 2 tiers below the 670m.

So is the potential 8% extra performance in AAA games worth it for you+higher power consumption? I would bet on the solid 760m.
