I'm looking for a laptop around ~$500 CAD / US -- No Duty Tax please!!!

I mainly use it for WoW and DoTA for "gaming" some others, but any new gen game I play on a console so I don't need a 1k+ laptop. I'd still like to play these mild games at a high quality.

I've been looking at a couple of models at Best Buy; Thoughts?

1) Acer Aspire 15.6" amd 8 series

2) Hp Pavilion 17.3" Intel i7

Anything better for my price range?

Thanks for the quick reply @qullcirl but I couldn't find those models on the Canadian website, and doesn't ship to Canada (on US site or Newegg Ebay account)

After searching reviews for this model, I'm thinking I should stay away from this model. Many many many people have had problems with it and to save a few bucks, I don't want to deal with this.

That's interesting, because everywhere I've seen the g505s, it's average 4+/5 stars (newegg, notebookcheck, amazon, etc), and lenovo itself has a fairly strong reliability record.
