I am looking at these two laptops at the moment.
They both fit my bill for $600 and fairly good for school work/gaming (60ish frames on low-med settings).
I am not too knowledgable on laptops, so I came to ask you guys.

Acer Aspire V5-572G-6679
Acer Aspire E1-472G-6648

Some differences between them:
The V5 has 6Gb RAM vs the 8Gb RAM of the E1.
The V5 has a GT 720M, and the E1 has a 820M.
The V5's screen is 1.6 inches (15.6) larger then the E1 (14).
E1 weighs 4 pounds, and the V5 weighs 9.
The V5 has 1 hour longer battery life.
Also the V5's CPU is .2Ghz (1.8Ghz) faster than the E1 (1.6Ghz).

So which one do you guys think is the better deal for school work & for gaming?

The laptop with the 820 video would be a tiny bit faster in graphics but they are both very close to each other.
Neither of them can can play newer games at 60 frames even at low settings. Maybe 30 depending on the game.

Take a look at this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231455
or http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y-series/y410p/

Both are more than 600 but for 600 you are looking at a very marginal laptop for gaming if you are buying a new system and since laptops are not upgradable much you should spend the most you can if you want video performance.
