If you're in the market for a new laptop, preferably one that can play games on low to medium settings, Future Shop has a pretty decent deal on a Dell laptop you might want to consider. Right now, you can pick up the Dell 15.6" Intel Core i7-2670M notebook with 500GB hard drive, 8GB RAM and dedicated GeForce 525M for $629.99. This is definitely a solid price for a laptop with these specs and should work well as a desktop replacement or for students living on residence.
This laptop features a second-generation quad-core i7 processor, decent hard drive space and pretty sizable RAM. That alone for under $650 is a good deal but throw in the 1GB dedicated GeForce 525M, a couple of USB 3.0 ports, HDMI out and a webcam and we're venturing into warm to hot deal territory. We don't expect it to play games on medium to high settings, but this should be fine if you're content playing on low to medium settings. At 5.5 pounds and moderate battery life, we wouldn't recommend this for commuters but, if you can look past those shortcomings, there's no denying this is a laptop with some power.
The deal is available online and in-store and free shipping is available on orders over $20.
Much thanks to grimzkunk for pointing this deal out!
