Wow really? I figured it would only be for college students. Thats pretty sweet deal there for sure. Wish I had the cash for a y410p or y510p. Get paid well enough but too many other things going on lol

I was just as surprised as you are. Dreamspark also is for highschool students! I have my account pending a custom verification now by sending a copy of my report card!

My opinion is that at the bottom of your price range, there are NO gaming oriented laptops that are going to hit 30+ FPS in games. At the top end ($700) you're in the territory of being able to buy a decent quality USED gaming oriented laptop. If you want to go brand new, you might need to add some of your own cash to the budget to get it up to $900 +/- a couple hundred dollars.

There are some pretty fantastic bargains on used laptops if you look around. Buying a new laptop is much like buying a new car -- as soon as you take it out of the store, it loses value immediately and depreciates most quickly after that for a year or two. You can pick up a $1500 laptop from a year ago for $800 if you shop around.

There is a G53 on fleabay for 650

Otherwise if you have to pay up front then look into the G46 model? They are upgradable as well

G46 is 669 on ebay
