Check out the notebookreview forums as suggested above. Malibal has a representative that is very active on the forums there. Clevo/Sager is just a brand of laptops that lots of resellers including malibal sell. They are very popular especially in gaming laptops.
I don't know what the required video card to play Diablo on High will be, but for the 15" laptops if you want to stay with the GTX 560 video card check out the lotus p151hm from Malibal. The main differences between that and the p150hm that I've been able to figure out is the power supply is smaller so it can't handle a more powerful video card upgrade, and it comes with the stock matte screen instead of glossy. For some reason it's a lot cheaper even when you add in the bigger power supply option. You could get one of those for about a grand once you add the OS.
If your budget is 2000 you could choose a much higher video card upgrade under the p150hm. They have the 6990 as an available upgrade for only 145 right now which seems like a good deal if you need the more power, and it still wouldn't be close to your 2k budget.
