I own a ASUS G75VW-BBK5 (w/upgraded 16gb ram) currently. It was my main system up until I finished my desktop rig.
Was looking to trade it in and replace it with a lightweight equivalent (if one exists) Any suggestions?
I can trade this in for a pretty good amount so anything that is within $900-1200 and maybe around 5lbs ( this bbk5 weighs almost 10!!)

This Malibal is just under 7 pounds with battery in the 1200 range:

This Sager is the same weight, it runs about 1300

Either of those would be a decent step up from the Asus, and you could swap that RAM out and use it in the new rig.

Well theres a big problem here, that being the words lightweight, gaming, and laptop. I dont know what games you're playing, but if it's anything more than WoW, stick to the desktop, or be prepared to shell out big money for a big heavy laptop with a real processor, excellent cooling, and a big GPU.

Understandable, the idea behind what i'm doing is to take this big heavy laptop and replace it for something lighter with as little downgrade as possible.
