The new HP Envy 15 Slim for $725 (free shipping) Haven’t seen good reviews yet and quality is unknown, but the 3D power is there with GTX 850M and an I7-4712HQ. I would bet that this is the 850M DDR3 and not GDDR5 otherwise they would probably have written it.
Anyway, for $775 it has a good performance / price ratio, though not as the V3-772G with GDDR5 (link) The 1080p screen quality is unknown, but other reader with a non-slim version of HP Envy 15 said it is not that good. I’m not sure if it applies here too.
I think there is a good chance it uses an eDP compatible panel and it is replaceable, but better wait for more sources. It is rather slim, but not that lightweight at 2.3kg. Backlit keyboard is also included So, overall, unless you pay some extra big tax, this is a very good option for those who look for a 15.6″ gaming laptop in these price ranges.
Again, not the fastest under $800, but it is a good option for those who want it all packed without the need to install OS and want the more future proof screen replacement option. Also, it is rather thin
