How about this one that pops up now and then for 399.
You can find reviews on that. My son has this one for under 399 new. Asus k55n ds81 but we added the second 4GB memory stick and the speed went up. However I'd stick to the A10 APU for gamers.
As to the 730m, and that laptop, I'm sure you found benchmarks on notebookcheck.com so I'll stop here.
The only game I care about is CoD really. On a setting of high is ideal but mid-high is good. I don't play all the latest and greatest games so don't care for insane crysis graphics etc.
Looking for 700 dollars max, but only if it's really worth it. It appears the Acer Aspire V3-571G-6622 with a 730m for 500 dollars refurbished is the best at the moment in terms of value. Are there any other machines which could do the job but cheaper?
Thanks for any help
