15.5 Inch
Windows 8
i3 - 3227U
4GB Ram
GT 740M Graphics card (How is this on less intensive games such as Dota and SC2?)
1920x1080p Resolution
500GB
English Keyboard (For us Canadians, this is pretty big)

After all taxes and rebates comes to just under $600.00. Good deal?

I researched that laptop for a friend a week ago and I found out that it has really abysmal battery life. Also any laptop you get these days can play LoL and Dota 2.

At 1920 x 1080 is gonna have trouble running games in medium, you gonna have to stick with playing on low.

And that processor is going to have trouble with SC2. You should be able to play almost anything on low though. If you have the option of being able to pay extra for an i5 and still get a good deal for it that would help a lot for SC2.

Dang, not a good deal then? Okay...

It's an alright deal, just not much good for gaming. Too bad the i5 is out of stock, that would actually be pretty tempting to me.
