Bing Lee’s online store has a four-day sale ending Friday, and one of the best deals is the 15.6in Toshiba Satellite P850/04P for only $999 (plus shipping). It’s got one of the new 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3610QM processors which is about 15% more powerful than a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2670QM. There’s also a huge 8GB of RAM which helps for multi-tasking and demanding tasks like editing videos. The final noteworthy spec for the price is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M, one of the newer mid-range graphics cards for notebooks that is definitely enough for gaming on the 15.6in (1,366 x 768 resolution) screen.

See a summary of the specs below.
The P850 features a 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3610QM (2.3GHz), a new high-end processor that’s roughly 15% more powerful than a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2670QM. In addition to being powerful it has better power management, allowing for longer usage between recharges.
It comes with a mid-range dedicated graphics card called the NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M. It’s a reasonably powerful mid-range component that should have no problems with modern games.
8GB of RAM is enough to either run many programs at once fluidly or run very intensive image and video editing software.
A large 750GB hard disk drive provides plenty of room for a reasonably large collection of files including movies and music.
The P850 sports a 15.6in (1,366 x 768 resolution) gloss screen. The gloss screen should have better colour richness when compared to a matte screen, but the reflectiveness will make it a bit difficult to use in direct sunlight.
The P850 has average portability, because it weighs 2.66kg and is 31.4mm thick. It'll be straightforward to carry around.
