    I've been looking for a laptop that has good gaming performance and that isn't too bulky as i'm going to use it for university. I wanted at least an i7, 8GB ram, dedicated graphics, and 500GB hard drive. My max price is $1000.
    I found a nice HP Envy 15 with pretty good specs and price.
    Has anyone used a recent envy laptop, if so how do you like it?
    Also do you guys think this too big to carry around all day, I usually just have a backpack.

    Any other suggestions I prefer to buy HP, Asus, Dell or Sony
