Some Options I found, just curious what ppl think as well

(I've heard bad things about Acer's quality... so i'm extremely skeptical about em)

Obviously, these are just finds I saw... I personally would rather have the opinions of ppl that know better, i'm by no means a laptop person, this is my first venture at buying one, hence why I really would love the opinions :)

I dont mean to be rude, but I did state I cannot buy from Sager simply because of a Credit deal I have from Newegg. Apologize if I wasn't clear, if I had all the money in my hands, i'd go sager in a heartbeat, but I cant.

oops,sorry missed that part.
OK,between the links you posted,MSI GT660 is the best choice(has the most powerful GPU) but it seems it's sold out.
Aside from that,HP DV7 is also worth a look
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's got HD 6550M which is slower than GTX 285M but it's overall a decent mid-range card.

I've narrowed my choices down to five options, hoping to get some feedback if possible? These are honestly the the best "Bang for buck" deals I see atm that can keep cost down and still give me maybe what i'm looking for. Any feedback, please, would be very much appreciated :)
