Default Picking a laptop for gaming/school

As the title explains im looking for a laptop i can use for school and gaming.
Mostly i play a random assortment of FPSers, LoL, and WoW.
My old laptop is terrible and hoping to finally play these games at least on high graphics, budget is around $700ish
this is what i found so far
Newegg.ca - Refurbished: ASUS N56VM-RB71 Intel Core i7 8GB Memory 750GB HDD 15.6" Notebook Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
but it being refurbished worries me a bit, anyone have any other recommendations?

also i live in Canada...(may affect where i can buy from)

thanks in advance

I would say refurb is the way to go to get the best bang for your buck as I have suggested in another very semilar thread Lenovo has a great outlet this link should take you to laptops with i7s and there are a few under 720 with dedicated video cards you kinda just have to jump on something when you see it and like it though sometimes the door busters are i7 as well but not today. http://outlet.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary...&page-size=100

Sorry about the ling link I'm on my cell phone
