I found this laptop and got interested to it

its the MSI GE700
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=135&cat2_no=271&cat3_no=&prod_no=2021

Its $1100 around here my place

it has

- Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
- Mobility HD5730
- Intel Core i5 450M 2.4GHz
- 1600x900 display
- Exclusive Cinema Pro technology
- Cinema-class high-fidelity speakers qualified by SRS Premium Sound
- Built-in HD webcam to guarantee good video/picture quality
- 802.11 b/g/draft-n Wireless LAN with Bluetooth
- HD Webcam
- 2GB RAM
- 320GB 7200RPM HDD

They also offer another deal

for $1200

- Windows 7 Home Premium Trial
- Mobility HD5730
- Intel Core i5 450M 2.4GHz
- 1600x900 display
- Exclusive Cinema Pro technology
- Cinema-class high-fidelity speakers qualified by SRS Premium Sound
- Built-in HD webcam to guarantee good video/picture quality
- 802.11 b/g/draft-n Wireless LAN with Bluetooth
- HD Webcam
- 2x2GB RAM
- 2x500GB 5400RPM HDD

its 17.3 inches long and weighs about 3.2kg (although I don't mind the weight and size anyway unless we talk about a desktop :heink:  )

Since I won't be gaming much on the laptop since I'll be using a desktop more for gaming :D 

and I really need to edit photos and do some video editing on the fly since I'll be at school most of the time
As well play some games during the break

Can the processor pull off some good processing for video editing or photo editing? (well mostly on photo editing)

Can the GPU run modern games on Medium or High at the laptop's native resolution (With playable FPS and I'm not expecting to MAX it anyway)
games like Sims 3, Batman Arkham Asylum, Left 4 Dead 2

I live somewhere in Asia BTW

It can run them on medium settings just fine.
As for the price,well its good but this ASUS G73 costs $100 more but has significantly better specs

Hmm, seems like BestBuy doesn't ship internationally, not sure though

I found the Asus G73JH model around here although it costed around $1800+
although this one had a larger resolution and had 8GB RAM

They were aslo offering a new deal for the MSI GE700
instead of a 320GB 7200RPM HDD, two 500GB 5400RPM ones, Windows 7 Home Premium Trial and 2x2GB RAM
