    Try an Alienware. You can customize your laptop from a selection of 4 different laptops. I recommend the M17X. 17 inch screen, rightside number pad, good looking, etc. www.alienware.com

    Thanks, for your response. I've looked at the Alienware M17x, what do you think about the Vaio F series off best buy?

    I haven't looked at the Viao F series. I'll look them up tomorrow and see if I can be of a little more help on those. Are there any certain aspects you're looking for, like HDD, RAM, etc.?

    Ok, I looked at the Vaio Fs and they look like pretty good laptops. They comes stock with 6Gig RAM but I think I saw a customization option so you could probably bump that up to 8. I'm sure the F series has everything you need at a much cheaper price. I know, though, after I can get a good job and get me some moolah I'm goiing to buy me a custom M17X. Anyway, depending on what you're going to use it for, the Vaio would be good. One thing that draws me toward the Alienware is the options of a 1 Terabyte and a 1.5 Terabyte HDD. Which I could use. But like I said, depending on what you will be using it for, or doing on it, the Vaio will be good.

    Yeah I see man. Actually, best buy has it packing with a 750 GB hard drive and a 8GB ram. And from what I hear, the screen is just downright beautiful. Thanks for the help

    Look at the Dell XPS 15. I picked up a refurbished one for $909+ tax, retail price was about $1200 with the following specs: 2.0Ghz Quad core Core i7, 750GB HDD, 8GB DDR3 RAM @ 1300Mhz, 1GB Nvidia GT 525M Graphics card, Blu-ray drive, Full HD 1080p screen, Backbit Keyboard, Dualband Wifi-N (2.4 & 5Ghz range), and Bluetooth 3.0. It includes 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 HDMI out, 1 eSATA, 1 10/100/1000 Gigabit eathernet port and a Mini Display port.

    Sounds really good. How much does it weigh though? Give me your honest opinion on your computer. Pros and cons. Please and thank you.

    It only weighs about 6lbs and is very fast. Battery life is amazing at about 5 hours just web browsing. Also the screen is bright even on the lowest setting.
    The only con i can think of ATM is the wifi range. I was able to get a very minimal connection in my room with my 5 year old laptop but now i can t get one with this new laptop. You have to take in to account that the house i live in was built in the 50's and walls are made out of plaster over drywall.
