Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a laptop that meets these specs:

-- Budget: $1000 – $1500
-- Size: 15-16"
-- Resolution: 1080p (Absolute must)
-- Good Linux support
-- Processor: Core i5
-- High quality keyboard, no flex
-- Country: USA
-- Battery: 3+ hours

Usage: Programming, moderate gaming, movies

Can you guys point me in the right direction for a laptop that meets these specs?

Thanks a lot!

Edit: While of course it's not the most important feature to me, I wouldn't mind a laptop that also has some pleasing-to-look-at aesthetic design. That's not to say I'm looking for a Mac, but something with a little bit of class would be nice.

Thanks for the welcome :) 

How is Sager in terms of build quality, and hardware support?

The build quality is great.
And XoticPC has a great customer support.(According to people who bought from them)

You can also look at ASUS G51/G60.

@Maziar: It does sound promising, but I found this forum discussing the Sager NP5135, and there seemed to be some dissatisfaction with the build quality and "unsettled keys" on the keyboard: http://forum.notebookreview.com/sager-clevo-reviews-own...

A solid keyboard is going to be important to me.

@ssshjp: I'll add that to my considerations, thanks.

Any more suggestions?

Okay, so I'm really leaning towards either the Sager NP5135, or a Dell XPS 15. I just think the new Dell XPSs are such a step back in design. How does the Linux support generally compare between Sagers and Dell?

Not sure about Linux but I guess it works fine with either of them.
