The laptop I recently bought, is a Sony SVE151D11L
. I'll attach the specs for you below. It can be found on sale around $549.00 which is what I paid for it.
It's not a gaming laptop, but with an i5 3210M, 6GB of memory, and the HD 4000 graphics, it does surprisingly well. I can play Medal of Honor around 40 fps, and the same with MW2. Most games that are about 3 years old, and older, will run just fine.
It has a SATA III port, so I replaced the HDD with an SSD, and now it boots in 12 seconds flat. Even the orbs around "Starting Windows", don't have time to finish spinning.
