Thanks for your reply!

The NP8662 seems to fit my profile very well.. only problem that remains is that i live in Europe and I don't know how expensive oversea shipments are (2 different currencies euro <> us dollar), neither how safe they are or how long they usually take. (I am thinking of ordering from XoticPC because of the configuration options)

I am afraid of buying a laptop with a pricetag of $1660 and end up paying $2300+ for foreign currency exchange charges and shipping costs..

Anyone have experience with that?
