this Dell XPS 17 Core i7 17.3" 3D Laptop w/ Blu-ray & 3D Glasses $1260.00 seems a good choice. But it's a little over your budget. http://www.dealstudio.com/searchdeals.php?type=id&q=d265434&ru=28906650
This laptop is nice too Asus B43J-B1B Core i7 2.8GHz 14" Notebook $759.00. But the screen size is a little smallhttp://www.dealstudio.com/searchdeals.php?type=id&q=d265402&ru=28906650
anyway, hope u find the best bet.
Cloudy, the Asus laptop you found has a i7 640... One of the weakest Core i7's, the one I found, is more expensive, but the processor is a current and fast CPU. What advantage does it have to the Samsung I found on Amazon?
And the Dell XPS deal is no longer valid...
