I've gone ahead an ordered the y510p, Thanks for the help. I live in Indiana, USA My current laptop has probably died on my graphics wise, and I'm planning on getting a new laptop. Whether or not Wal-Mart abides by the warranty I purchased from them. With this in mind, I want to purchase a laptop that can handle prolonged gaming, as that is my primary use for the laptop. The secondary usage is for my college courses. As I have not spent much time comparing computer products, I'm not sure where to begin my search, or what to look for. ~~~~~ My current laptop is an Inspiron N5050 Intel Core i3-2330M Processor 4GB Memory Integrated Intel HD Graphics (Stupid no 3D shadow shading) Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) Dell Stage software The main games I play are Minecraft, Pay Day 2, and League of Legends. I would like to play games such as cube world, Planet Side 2 without lag as I have invested money into them, but not had that much opportunity to play extensively due to current lag issues. For most games I'm used to playing with the graphics more or less on minimum to get the best FPS out of the games as I can. So I am more than happy to play games around 30-40 FPS, at whatever settings. ~~~ For me, being able to play games is the larger focus for me. If it can do that well enough, I don't really care about the other features. Don't Need: I almost always have the laptop plugged into power whether I'm at home or at school. I don't watch movies that much, nor do I burn disks, so a normal DvD Player is fine. I never have used a touchscreen, and see no need to make having one a priority, a mouse is fine. At the moment, I never use a webcam, and have no plans to use one in the near future. Do Need: I do need wireless connection. I use the wireless when at home, and at school. I use the laptop on the desk at home and at school. I also use it sitting on my lap in bed, though usually on a cooling fan. So having something that is less likely to burn my legs or make them over heat is a plus. Financing: I am looking to spend $750-$1250 on the new laptop. I would like to purchase where I can get a warranty on the laptop, in-case something does go wrong. Quality for its price is what I'm looking for, with my needs/don't needs in mind. If I can get the same gaming quality for cheaper not having one of the things I don't need, all the better. ~~~ With these things in mind, are there laptops you guys can recommend, or things I should keep an eye out for when looking at laptops?
