Okay codecall so at the moment I have a Lenovo Y470.
Here are the specifications :
Current OS: Ubuntu 13.04
CPU: 3rd Gen i7
RAM: 8 GB
GPU: intel® Sandybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 and Nvidia Geforce 550M ( optimus, but only the intel works , I've tried bumblebee )
HDD: 500 GB
And I want to invest into another laptop and use that one for my entertainment use ( gaming, netflix, etc) and use this laptop for my technical computer use ( programming, experimentation ). I'm going to be selling my xbox and I've recently started working so I should be able to afford a computer on a $1000 or less budget within 5-6 weeks. But I want to get the best deal possible on my laptop. I would prefer it to contain a windows 7 OS, with a 4th gen i7, and a nice GPU ( better than my current ) , ram can still be 8gb or 6. So any suggestions ? I was thinking about a newer lenovo Y410P
