I was looking at http://laptops.toshiba.com/laptops/qosmio/X500/X505-Q85... This laptop is basically what I want except for instead of a blu ray reader or the extra 2 gigs of ram maybe a better screen or graphics card. I don't need a solid state so that could also be sacraficed for gaming performance. With my discount I can snag it for 1800 with a backpack custom for it after taxes etc.
