My Hp envy 14 broke and now I need a new laptop, I did my research and I found this Lenovo: Lenovo IdeaPad Y Series Y510P-00043NL ---> it has a Full HD screen, i7-4700MQ, 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz ram, 1TB 5400RPM + 24GB SSD, Nvidia GT 755m 2GB in SLI, But I'm not sure if this laptop is the best I can get for this budget. So maybe someone has some suggestions. My budget is €1000-€1250.
It is insane how much that is marked up internationally. The US price is no where near that much for the same system. I am not sure which country you are in, but you could try a boutique vendor. My understanding is Eurocom ships all over the world, www.eurocom.com. I have bought from ibuypower.com and cyberpowerpc.com before with great success, but I do not know if they ship internationally. As far as a standard off the shelf system goes, Toshiba and ASUS both have excellent gaming systems to consider also. Wish I could help you. Hopefully you have good luck finding what you are seeking.
I would recommend either Asus or MSI gaming laptops. I just took a look on UK Amazon and found this http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GE70-2OE-447UK-17-3-inch-Processor/dp/B00HYY04W4/

If you can find one in your budget, I highly recommend an Asus G-series laptop, I have been a proud owner of one for almost 2 years.
I recently went through choosing a new laptop for research and gaming and found that the Gigabyte machines are great value for money.
I ended up buying a Gigabyte P27K: 17" 1080p, i7-4700mq, 16gb RAM, 256gb SSD, 1tb HDD, GTX 765m.
I'm in Australia and the markups here are crazy, but if you can find a good price online it is a nice machine. I've been very happy with it - primarily in the fact that in addition to the two HDDs included it has space for another 2.5" drive. I installed another 1tb drive and use it as a dedicated Linux drive.
It isn't the smallest machine, but that wasn't a priority for me. I prefer a bigger laptop as I need both portability and the ability to work on genetic sequence alignments that are painful on tiny screens.
In terms of gaming, I am running the usual things I play on high or ultra at 1080p without any issues (Dragon Age series, Mass Effect series, Skyrim, SWTOR, Neverwinter MMO).
Anything asus makes is going to be high quality:
If you can fit this into your budget I would suggest this:
I'd go with what everybody is recommending... the ASUS G750JW. Alternatively, search up for notebooks equipped with GTX 765m. I've been hearing a lot of micro stuttering issues with the SLI on the Lenovo Y500 series for a while now.
Acer V5 573G. i5, full HD anti-reflective screen. Nvidia 750m is plenty at 4GB. 8GB RAM, easily upgrade to 12. Only downside is the HDD, again easy to upgrade in the future.
