I really like the build quality of lenovos, but unfortunately they are ruled out b/c they don't have good enough gpus.
And to Maziar...I really am tempted by the sager. I am pretty sure that is what I will get, and I read some about it. Apparently they are somewhat upgradeable, so maybe I can upgrade the gpu eventually.
Kevin...thanks for the suggestion, but I want a laptop that has a subdued aesthetic, but still with graphical power. If that wasn't the case, I probably would have gone with alienware in the first place.
