You can get better asus one instead of spending on a lenovo for the same price,look for asus versatile series and choose one for your needs,look for i7 4200u and nvidia gt 720m..i'm sure you'll get it within your budget

i7 u series and a 720M will never outperform the Lenovo's i7 Q series processor and 755M. Later, the Lenovo's performance can be upgraded by buying a second graphics card to go in the disc drive slot, something the ASUS laptops just cannot do.
