Long story short, I want a laptop that isn't necessary for gaming, but for video, etc. Basically, I hate buying laptops that only a year later are very laggy online or become horribly slow. So instead of spending $400, I'm going to spend a bit more this time, are any of these good deals?

Price: $799.99
*For $100 I can upgrade to: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 650M Graphics with 2GB GDDR5 memory [HDMI, VGA]*

Price: $766.14

Asus: ASUS A73SD-TS72 Notebook PC - Intel Core i7-2670QM 2.2GHz, 8GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, DVDRW, 1GB Nvidia GT610M, 17.3 Display, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Brown, 1-Yr Warranty / 1-Yr Accidental Damage at TigerDirect.com
Price: $849.99

Thank you so much guys!

I would get the Asus over the Lenovo because the Lenovo has lower specs then the Asus and Asus is far more reliable then HP. If your not gaming, then it's not necessary to pay extra for an upgrade in the video card. Also every computer will eventually become "laggy" or "slow", you just need to maintain it.
