I am looking for a relatively cheap laptop for gaming. I also prefer Windows 7, but I don't want to pay more than $1000. I found some preferable results on Ebay and I would like your opinions. All of these laptops have favorable CPUs and memory, but the graphics are what confuses me because it is not that easy to find out how good and fast the graphics are. For example, if the graphics are Intel, gpuboss has no information on it. Here are some links to favorable options:

Hey! So I looked at all your options ... the decision may come down to preference. Technically speaking, the Lenovos are both the best performing laptops. However, the Y410P has a better resolution, which may result in worse FPS if you play in its native resolution. On the bright side, everything will look much better.

I noticed you didn't want to spend more than $1,000 so this solution might be slightly costly. -(http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-N550JK-DS71T-15-6-Inch-Touchscreen-Laptop/dp/B00IAA5BSS/ref=psdc1_t1_B00K2O4S0W_B00IAA5BSS) - $1,059 and free shipping.

It has a new GTX 850M, which is significantly better performing GPU compared to all five of your choices. This is just something to consider. :) Otherwise, the Lenovos, either one, are a great choice.

Do you have a company preferance? If not I would recommend:http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np7358-clevo-w350ss-p-6991.html?wconfigure=yes
Also for gaming laptops try to aim for nvidia GPU. The 800M series are the newest generation of the mobile GPUs. Also order from xotic PC, no taxes and free shipping = :D

Just realized though, that the Dell is a Windows 8, even though I specified in the search that I wanted Windows 7 laptops only.

As great of a GPU that I understand that it is, I won't be finding a Windows 7 laptop with this particular model since it is so new. I do understand, though, that I should stick to Nvidia for the best graphics.

I guess I am limiting my options by not including Windows 8 laptops as options. I know replacing Windows 8 with Windows 7 can be moderately difficult, but if you think that it won't effect performance or any other aspects of the laptop, then i will include Windows 8 laptops as possibilities.
