you can get the lenovo y50 with i7 4700 hq @ 950$

however if i remember correctly , the gigabyte pc25xv2 with i7 4800 and an 880m was available for 100$ during black friday (i dont know when there will be a sale like that again)

and about the y50 , it is thin and the only con is that they gve you a portable dvd/R drive and not an inbuilt one
