I'm starting my first year in college is i need a laptop that can get the job done. The faster the laptop can with the budget i proposed would be best. I'm not looking for an ultra portable notebook, but not looking for a 10 pounds notebook either, a balance would be nice.

I have been looking a lot at the Lenovo y580 notebook which is around $999.
