I am also looking for a new computer. I have currently a sony vaio that has some sort of hybrid video card that can't be updated. I play WoW and Guild Wars 2 and it runs sooo slow on my laptop. Ideally I would like to keep it under $1000. I've been reading about alienware which I thought was the way to go, but then read some reviews about the motherboards frying after a few months on the cheaper ones.
I just want something I can play games on with high graphics settings with a good frame rate...right now all the games I play are at the lowest graphic setting and worst resolution possible. Any advice would be appreciated. I don't know much about computers.

I think Sony Vaio S13 would do. It's priced a little below your budget but it has pretty decent specs: Core i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, Nvidia GT 640M LE GPU, 640 HDD, 13 inches screen.

If you are not care about brand-new or refurbish,i suggest you should take a look on Alienware laptop. There are a lot of deal to lower its price 20% - 30%. Normally, one Alienware M17X R3 ref is around $1200 - $1300 based on it specification. You can google for code and apply in dell outlet store.
We currently have an old desktop that needs to go. The office where the desktop is currently located in will be turn into a bedroom soon. Given that I may take a laptop on occasional business trip oversee a pure "desktop" replacement may not be ideal. In any event, seems like a laptop would be the best solution for us at this point.
Also, I'm looking for something very versatile as I will use it for pretty much everything: Media streaming, gaming (Guildwar2/Starcradf/DiabloIII), spreadsheet, etc...
Budget wise, I would like to find something bellow 1000$CAN/US if possible.
Can anyone can 1- guide me on the spec I should be looking for given my usage At this point, I suspect that I need:
CPU with 3rd gen i7 8 ram DDR 1600 a dedicated card with 2G of memory
on my wish list I would add: back-lid keyboard, Blue ray disk
2- point in the direction of the best deal out there? I live in Canada, so if anyone knows about a good place to buy laptop... that would be great.
