I am personally waiting for either the Gigabyte P34 V2 or Lenovo Y50 to be released.

They both have the 860m maxwell GPU.
I would pass on the Y510P being SLI is just terrible for battery life and not all games are optimized for SLI configurations.

Also to add.. there is also the MSI Apache GE60.. I decided to pass on that model since its 1 1/4 thick while the other 2 are under an inch thick. But that being said, i think the MSI GE60 would be the least expensive out of the 3. If thickness isnt something your really shooting for that would be a good option aswell for you.

Alienware is so overrated. Not a good price to performance ratio.
