Default In the market for a laptop for light gaming

Hey.

I will be in the market for my first laptop in the next few months. It will be used mainly for college, but I would like to play some games on it. I mainly play MMOs and some older RTS games. Should I wait until June when Haswell-based laptops are released, or just settle for one of the current gen Ivy-bridge processors? Currently looking at the Lenovo Y500 or MSI GE-60. Thanks

Wait. New processors. New capabilities. If this is for college, it will be with you for 3-4 years. Make sure its current technology.
