When you state casual gaming could you tell me what is one of the games you will be playing or the most one with the most demanding on the graphics card?

I would save up a few more bucks a go with a 17.3" screen and as much ram as you can afford. HDD size doesn't matter much anymore with the price of externals.

While for one it only has integrated graphics, so you have to consider that it won't be able to run games very well/high settings, and it's also an i3.
Also the amount of RAM a laptop comes with stock doesn't really matter since you can upgrade it.
You can also buy new hardrives or get an SSD for speed.
Finally, the screen size will really dictate battery life.
Sub 15.6" screens are good cause they use so little battery power.

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

You can play chess on it if that is your form of casual gaming unless you mean playing "Skyrim" once a week but we can all stress "Integrated" versus "Dedicated" which can mean the most difference....
