Default Looking for suggestions on a new laptop.

Hello everyone,I've recently begun to search for a new laptop. I'm a college student, and I'd like something I can take to college with me and play games when I have breaks(and do homework I guess ).Of course, I'm on a budget. So I'm looking for something around $600 or $700. I don't need a gaming laptop per say, I just want something with enough power to run games smoothly and on decent settings. Does anyone have any suggestions? They would be much appreciated! Thanks,-Fred

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS7750G-6662 Notebook Intel Core i5 2430M(2.40GHz) 17.3" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 640GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi AMD Radeon HD 6650M
This is the best I could find under $700 at Newegg. Below is the link for the specs on the graphics card (fps for individual games are toward the bottom).

If you want 8gb of memory instead of 4gb, you can replace the 2x2gb sticks in there with this:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-8GBSQ

Get an Acer or HP laptop both cheap but will definitely do the works..
