I was looking at getting a laptop for college. I have a budget of around $1000.

I was looking at a Lenovo IdeaPad Y580.

So as for my question, is this the best available laptop for around $1000? If you have any other ideas of good laptops please list them. Just keep in mind that it is mainly for college, so I'm looking for quality that will last me at least 4-5 years. I have looked at a few others, but the Lenovo seems great.

I want to be able to play games on it during my free time, not necessary for max settings. I am only skeptical of Lenovo because I have never had one or know anyone that does. But they seem to have friendly cusomer service and good reviews.

Also, I used to have a Gateway FX laptop, it was great while I had it but I sold it to a friend. I also have had a couple of not performance laptops, and I am currently using a crappy Compaq owned by my sister. I have to double tap each key to get it to type it -_-

But anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

That looks like a nice laptop for the price! I would go for it. Lenovo is just as good as anyone else these days, so you should be fine there.
