If you're looking for a notebook with some power, and don't mind buying refurbished, FutureShop.ca has a good deal on a 15.6" Lenovo worth checking out. While quantities last, you can order the refurbished Lenovo IdeaPad P580 15.6" Laptop with Intel Core i7-3520M, 750GB HD, 8GB RAM, GT630M, Windows 7 on sale for $499.99. Again, it's refurbished but there's no denying there's lots of value here, especially at this price. It'll be hard to find a notebook with the aforementioned specs for less so you'll want to check this out if you need a new laptop.

There isn't much more to the deal other than it's a solid notebook at a very good price. There's lots of hard drive space, RAM and comes with a third-generation i7 processor. The dedicated video card should be good enough to play most games on low to medium settings, though we wouldn't expect anything more out of a mobile GPU.

The deal is live now but quantities are limited. Shipping is free.

Thanks to Glancealot for sharing this one with us.

    • Graphics Chipset Intel HM 76 is most likely a typo. considering that it's an ivy i7, it most likely has HD4000.

      You are buying something for less than the cost to build it here.

      edit: apparently, it does have NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M that scored 1177 in 3DMark 11 (Performance 1280x720) which is on par with Intel HD Graphics 5000 that scored 1134. I don't think you can get a laptop with HD5000 for less than $650 in the near future, so this is a good buy.

    • Dedicated GT630M /2GB. Not bad.

      Looks like you can swap out the optical drive for a hard disk and install a SSD in the primary bay. Nice for $500.

    • My girlfriend bought one of these back in like september of last year. She's had some small glitches here and there mostly the touchpad not working properly. Build quality is decent. For 500$ its a steal though. It can play BF3 on low-mediumish with solid 60FPS no problem. For someone looking for a uber cheap gaming laptop this is a decent buy for sure.

    • wait, are we talking about the same laptop here? i am pretty sure that the GPU for this laptop is Intel HD Graphics 4000.

      edit: never mind. it does have NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M that scored 1177 in 3DMark 11 (Performance 1280x720) which is on par with Intel HD Graphics 5000 that scored 1134. I don't think you can get a laptop with HD5000 for less than 650 in the near future, so this is a good buy.

      there is a difference between:

      1, a good deal.

      2, a pricing error.

      I am pretty sure you are referring to the bestbuy price-drop fiasco that some RFDers took advantage off at the end of 2012/beginning of 2013.

      Furthermore, the p580 you have does not have i7 and only comes with 6gb RAM and has Intel HD 4000 instead, which scored only 607 in 3DMark 11 (Performance 1280x720).

      Sure NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M is no where near being a top GPU, but the difference between a score of 1177 and 607 is probably the same as that between a very crappy car and a really good bicycle, i don't know about you, but i'd take the car over the bicycle in a heartbeat.

    • pros: a fast dual-core (one of the fastest) CPU plus a middle class dedicated GPU is a very good balance. 6 cell battery is decent.

      cons: refurbished, a little heavy, no ssd, 1366 x 768, but hey, you are spending $500, what did you expect?
