Lenovo Y500 is easily the best in the budget

Yeah..but a couple of the reviews i read say that the battery life pulls down because of the dual grafix in it. Also is it really necessary that my needs for medium gaming and better portability and battery life would require this model? Do check out this model of VAIO that I stumbled upon on newegg..
SONY VAIO S Series SVS15127PXB Notebook- Intel Core i7 3632QM(2.20GHz), 15.5" Full HD 8GB Memory DDR3 1333, 750GB HDD 7200rpm, NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE

The fault is this is almost the same price as The lenovo y500 plus just a GB of dedicated grafix.. Any suggestions if this suits my need best?

That GT640M LE isn't near to even single GT650M. My laptop gives battery backup of 3-4hrs under light usage.

Also is there just one GT650 or two of them..?Damn.. I am an owner of a SONY VAIO EB36FG i bought 2.5 years back. I plan to give it to my folks and get another one..That's why I'm currently searching for a new laptop. That laptop is 2.7kg. So I guess 3kg isn't much of an issue. But as I had repeated before, my gaming needs are medium. Like CS, need for speed, FIFA and maybe even crysis and it's successors.. There are times when I want to play these games a lot..so maybe running them on medium settings would be fine by me.. FHD display would be a wonderful spec for the laptop anyhow..Do help me choose a suitable one. And what is the general opinion about asus?

Go for dual gpu Y500 from lenovo in this price bracket.

Do check out the posts i've put up after yours in this thread..I would appreciate all the help available..:)
