I would likely not buy them because for the most part they have some sort of graphics card using shared memory from your RAM. Not that it is bad but I just don't like that.

That's my primary concern with laptops because it is very rare to get it these days with shared memory.

Checkout DELL's inspiron computers. With little extra money you can get the 17 incher (and trust me it's worth it) with a dedicated video card and have a blast for yourself.

The Lenovo was a reasonable deal. You can find that Everex on NewEgg, new, for about the same price.
