Hello all. I am new to the gaming world, more of a voyeur than player, but I love games like Alice and browser MMORPGs. (Wartunes not WoW) I am looking for a loptop that has the ability to play games like Alice and be able to do other stuff (like stream Pandora) if I choose. Multitasking for me is a must for I have A.D.O.S..(Attention Defecit Oooo Shiny). I was advised that I would need either a quad 4 or an I5, at least 4 gigs RAM and Windows 7. That being said, which is the best?

The Y500 is on sale on the Lenovo site for $879.

It has I7
8GB ram
GT650m GPU with 2GB
1080 screen
1 TB drive with 16GB ssd

It has a ultrabay so you can buy a 2nd GPU if needed. Also on sale for $137

One GPU plays most new games on med to ultra. the 2nd GPU will allow you to play all of the new games on high or ultra.
