Unless you can find a better one than these two I would go with the Lenovo.

The levono is the better here.
Things I like: Minecraft, Apple, Trombones, Ponies (Fluttershy is best) and Microwaved Marshmallows
Things I don't like: Broccoli, Americanisms, Marmite, people who say 'dude!' excessively

OT, but why one earth do they put 2GB or GDDR5 on a fairly slow mobile chip?

Not really, but it isn't going to be of much use with a chip that slow. They're just making the chip more expensive than it should be without a proper reason.
If you have to choose from those, definitely the Lenovo.

Well, depends on what you consider fine. In my opinion, not really, but you can't expect much from a mobile GPU, and you're not going to find anything much better than it at the price range for sure.

I don't get why people always want gaming laptops that are broke.

If you only have 600 dollars you'll be lucky to get a -desktop- that plays games moderately.
That one dragon coding thingy.

I don't want a heaverly oversized gaming laptop... I just want a laptop that plays games like Dragon Nest smoothly, it doesn't have to be overkill.. Minecraft with an average fps of 50 is good enough for me. Playing games like Skyrim on 30 fps on normal is good for me.
