Is this a good laptop?

I've been looking at laptops for gaming and I've found one I think I might buy. It is an HP. It has an i7 3610QM and 8gb of DDR3 RAM. This is where I am a bit concerned about performance. The laptop uses a NVIDIA GT 650m, and a 500gb 5400rpm HDD with a 32 gb acceleration cache, and there is no upgrade option. I know that I should be looking for a 7200rpm drive, but I figured that the acceleration cache would make up for it.

You can buy an HD if you want.
Yes it is a "Good" laptop.

I have a 5400rpm HDD in my lenovo, it's actually not that bad. It could be better, but nothing like "I must have new HDD now!"
