Witch one is it on this list, (SEE FIRST LINK)

Well you did not answer fast enough so on that note take a loot at this system. (SEE SECOND LINK)
Acer Aspire V3-771G-9875 Notebook
3rd Gen Intel Core i7 3610QM @ (2.30GHz) withTurbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz (for 4 active cores), 3.2 GHz (for 2 active cores) and 3.3 GHz (for 1 active core) & 6MB L3 Cache.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M With Dedicated 2GB GDDR5 VRam (DOES HAVE THE GDDR5 VERSION VERIFIED FROM ACER THEMSELF)
The gaming performance of the GeForce GT 650M equipped with DDR3 graphics memory lies somewhere in the former 2011 high-end category between the GeForce GTX 460M and GTX 560M. The performance is exceptionally good in shader-heavy DirectX 11 games and benchmarks. However, the 128-Bit memory interface can be a bottleneck if DDR3 graphics memory is employed. Despite the slower core clock of only 735 MHz, the GDDR5-version of the card should be much faster. Demanding games of 2011 like Battlefield 3 will be playable in 1366×768 and medium or high settings. Less demanding games, such as Modern Warfare 3, are easily playable with maxed out settings and 1080p resolution.

THis will play any game on the market at medium to high settings without breaking a sweat. Will run any software on the market to date. Compare it to the new Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch: 2.6 GHz with Retina display that would cost you $ 2,799.00, Same CPU only the mac has .3 GHz more but the Acer has the 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M vs there 1 GB version. Everything about this Acer screams, HELLO DUMBY yes you why would you buy that Mac Book Pro? LOL @ you XD

Hope this was in your price range or even better under it, you will be happy with this Laptop, I just talked a buddy of mine out of buying that stupid 15″ MacBook Pro & got him this bad baby. He said he couldn’t have been any happier, said with the amount of money he saved & the things he is able to do with this Acer he will never think about buying a Mac again & I do not blame him!
