If you were to sell your "big rig" do you really think you would only get 100-200 dollars? Because from my math that is what you think you would get. Now tell us again EVERYTHING you are looking for. Screen size, HDD, processor, video card, RAM, etc.

15-17 Inch screen, 750 or 1TB HDD, quad core, atleast a 1 gig dedicated memory 6GB memory

I know i'm looking for more then in my price range but i guess income tax is coming pretty soon too though... but even with those specs theirs so many name brands i'm just looking for what some of you guys have had experience with.

I have an ASUS laptop, which I am in love with. It is out of your price range (1200) but I know ASUS makes great laptops, so you might want to look into them.

You are so right with the wide variety of options sporting supposedly "advanced" technology causing difficulty in the selection of your notebook/laptop. Just what exactly does "LIGHT gaming" dictate? Games like Runescape or games like WoW? Or did you mean "LIGHT" by hours you'll be gaming, but still be playing spec-demanding games?

I am currently on one right now. I have the touch screen disabled because i hate touch screens (nothing futuristic about rubbing your grubby greasy fingers all over your screen) but mine runs great! It was around 525 dollars and i run light games on it such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, TF2, Maplestory, Starcraft II and Warcraft III. Even League of Legends works like a charm! I certainly recommend the series of laptops. Mine is from the Samsung NP300 series of laptops (2.10GHz x86 chipset)
