I might be buying a Lenovo W520. Here's the setup:
Processor: Intel Core i7-2760QM (2.40 GHz, 6MB L3)
System graphics: NVIDIA Quadro 2000M with 2GB of DDR3 memory
Total memory: 4 GB Memory PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz SODIMM (1 DIMM)
I want to know the numbers on fps games counter strike source with the W520
800X600 resolution, all low graphics video, hdr off, multi prosseseur on = fps?

If you wouldn't mind waiting for a bit longer, you could wait for Lenovo W530 and have even better experience for gaming.
- Dolby Home Theater v4 and much better speaker
- Better overall performance and even longer battery life

Have a nice day!

just tried diablo 3 and it runs on high quality with native resolution (1920x1080) without any lag.
system as seen below.

Always keep in mind that apparently the Quadro video cards are *NOT* designed for gaming, but 3D modeling/CAD, etc. So it works for casual gaming (Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, etc), but I don't think you will get much value out of the laptop for more hardcore gaming. Also from my limited experience running games on lower than native res looks horrible (blurry, etc)

I've got almost exactly the same specs (2860QM, 2000M, 16GB, Intel 520 240GB), but Diablo3 doesn't run fluently with 1920x1080. In the beginning of the game maybe, but later on the details or resolution has to be lowered or it gets very laggy in big fights. In addition W520 gets too hot handle.
I really like W520, but it is not a gaming machine and D3 is really on the edge of being playable at FullHD resolution.

I had crysis running on my laptop, at 1920x1080, with everything maxed out, and once I turned the power settings to maximum performance and the Lenovo Turbo boost on, it ran smoothly. I don't know about newer games, but it runs crysis way better than my W520 did. I didn't monitor the FPS either, but it was smooth enough to be 30 or higher.
