All the new shit is getting above my head, so need a hand here.
Biggest game I play is WoW. Maximum resolution and HD quality is not so important. I just want more performance then graphics.

Id like 17''. 6-8GB Ram.
I already have a 1TB external HD for storage of random shit. But id like a little storage ability outside of games.
I have a 320G now thats close to full just from games.
Also wouldn't mind a SSD for operating system (quick boots n such)
So a small SSD and a small HHD for game storage. Rest of my BS will go to external HD.

What could I do for around 1,000$. MAYBE 1,200 max.

Also ive heard windows 8 is not good for gaming but it looks like 7 is getting harder and harder to find.

Refurbished is an option.

Woops! Sorry about that, I was originally posting a link to different version of that laptop, but noticed it was a refurb. Yeah, that one doesn't have an SSD, but you could easily throw one in. I also just noticed you said refurbed is an option, so let me get you that first link! (It's better altogether!)

If the 2" really matter than scramble for another laptop but it will be hard to find the same specs for the price, i would just go with the lenovo y510p:)
