The only problem is both the above options do not allow me to make futher configurations and update my laptop.
My customizations in first post are made from US WEBSITES dell.com and xoticpc.com which do not ship to India or Netherlands. :( 

Morever, I was able to customize M17x on dell.co.uk but I was not able to fill there shipping form completely, it had serious issues, as well chat was not available.

Do we have any websites in UK which allow configurations possible for a high-end gaming laptop ?
or
Any online website in US, which ships internationally ?

XoticPC ships internationally, so they can send you to either India or Netherlands

Hi Maziar,
I am unsure that they ship internationally, but i received a reply from there sales representative via email that they only accept credit cards from US/Canada as well they do not accept paypal to prevent fraud.

Well i have seen a guy in another forum who lived in Bahrain and ordered a notebook from them and he got it.You can pay via money transfer i think.
The guy whom i talked to was very helpful(his name was Justin, you can find him the xoticpc forums)talk with him and i think you can buy it with paying via wire transfer.

Hello again,
You are correct, they do ship internationally in case payments are made via money tranfer or cheque.
xoticpc chat representative Hutsady is of great help who clarified many questions for us.

Thank You.
