Hi, I'm looking at buying a laptop mostly for School but I also want to be able to run the occasional game on it decently and I was hoping to get a few recommendations. I'm looking to spend around $1000 but I could possibly go a bit over and of course lower would be nice. An ideal size would be 13 inches but I wouldn't mind too much going up to a 15.6 inch size. My current laptop has an nVidia Geforce 610m which is about as useful as a rock so pretty much anything is going to be an upgrade.Also the Asus UX303LN is exactly what i want but too expensive. Cheapest I could find was $1500 on sale. Also I live in Australia where we have a very limited range, and what we have is ridiculously marked up...
Thanks

The lenovo y50 is good, don't know how much it costs in your area but I have heard good things about it. The only thing is that is is 15.6 inches. You could try some of these sites and see if any of them are good:

@Dasulman: Still a bit too pricey.

@Velo1300: It isn't available in Australia according to Lenovo. They don't seem to like us...

@Bolin: Can't seem to find t in Australia and I have terrible luck ordering things online so I don't want to risk getting it from the USA.

i showed you the Clevo WS230SS - which is also named the NP7338 for sager. That's the only thing in the size range that you specified. save up or go to 15.6 for a decent gaming experience.

Unless I find a ridiculously good special I think I'm not going to be able to get what I'm after. Will that laptops with the 800m series of GPUs go down in price when the 900m series comes out? If so it might be worth waiting?

gtx 900m series is already out, if they haven't gone down it's because they won't, any soon. 900m series are only 970m and 980m, there's no need for 860m and lower GPUs to go down, not atleast for 5 months.

There aren't many good performing 13,3'', your best bet is the sager np7338 which you can't buy

Okay that's annoying but thanks. Are there any cheaper 14 or 15 inch laptops you'd recommend? Being light is the main concern here.

Yes, here we get everything later and with a rather large markup.... For example the Lenovo Y series isn't available here yet... As well as this there is markups of up to $700.
