Help me find a new laptop


Novice Member
My previous HP Pavilion m6-1035dx fell and the hdd is all messed up, don't know if its worth fixing or just upgrading to a new laptop?

Anyways, my budget is around $500-650, yet I can find any good deals on Cyber Monday, go figure. I'm OK with a refurbished as long as no scratches or dents or visible.

Some quick checkpoints I need. At least 1920x1080, HDMI, 8GB+ memory, 750GB+ hdd (1TB would be nice), a dedi graphics card if possible, keyboard backlit & an optical drive would be useful but if I can save a good bit of money then I can live without one. I'd be using this as an all purpose machine. Minor gaming as I'm in no way an extreme gamer, maybe a couple hours a week. I'll be streaming large files to my TV's in the house, using Photoshop and other image/video editing software.

I know in my price range I really can except the greatest machine to do what I'm asking so I understand some things here and there will have to be sacrificed. I just want a machine that'll last me for the next 3 years.

I've been looking at Lenovo a lot recently, especially the Z40's, everything on there website is half off or some huge discount.

I found this deal on Newegg, what do you think? For $629, is this worth it? I could not find a full hd laptop w/ at least 8gb ram, a decent video card, a HDD bigger than 500gb that was any cheaper than this.

ASUS R510DP-FH11 Notebook AMD A-Series A10-5750M (2.50GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8670M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8 (64 bit)

Thanks and Happy Holidays.

Edit: Before I forget, I have CC's with Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy, TigerDirect & B&H Photo Video, so I've been trying to check those places out. Lenovo accepts Amazon Payments which is why I was looking at them.
