Can this laptop with these specs be beat at this price?

Looks to be an awesome deal.

For <$100 more you can get an i7 and GT 750M Lenovo Y510p that blows that out of the water.

This. Unless you really want the touchscreen, that isn't really too great of a deal.

If you're willing to get rid of a touch screen, I'd imagine you could easily get the latest A10 APU or even an entry level gaming laptop with a discrete card at that price, especially getting closer to black friday.

My same Laptop. Just upgrade the ram and you're good to go. It'll still be cheaper than the one you asked about.

Where did you find that for only 100 more? I see it just shy of a grand. I will definitely go that route if priced around 800.00
