Is this a good deal for a laptop?

Get something with an i3 or i5 at least. The reason it's so cheap is because the CPU isn't that great. The graphics card is decent though.

What will you be using your laptop for, and what is your budget? We could find something much better for your needs.

EDIT: CPU isn't as bad as I thought, still definitely not nearly as powerful as an i5.

I want to be able to do some quality gaming. Doesn't have to max everything. Budget? Hmm anywhere from 500-1000$.

You know whats funny? I got this for around that price.

The battery specs is a lie though. It lasts WAY longer unless they accidentally gave me a 9 cell.

That laptop is fine, I'm planning to buy it myself. With a CPU overclock (which barely adds to thermals and brings it into i5 range), the 6650M beats the GT 540M and is almost in range of the GT 555M. For $500 flat, and considering the general quality of the computer (fan control, touch buttons, great keyboard, etc.) its a steal. Don't ask these things on a board mostly populated by desktop users like this one, you're bound to be mislead.
