The Qosmio machines have good specs but I see a lot of them refurbished on newegg which makes me think they're not that good and people are returning them.

The MSI Force machine James296 linked is good, but you can get the same thing in 17.3 inches for almost the same price, and buying from xoticpc opens up other customization options. http://www.xoticpc.com/force-1761-msi-1761-p-3152.html?...

Get one that has NVidia Optimus.
Optimus has two graphics cards. One efficient one and a second one for gaming. The gaming card shuts off COMPLETELY when not needed so the laptop isn't unbearably hot like other gaming laptops.

I STRONGLY suggest you get an Optimus laptop using a GTX600M series, even if you have to wait since it's fairly new.

The new 600 series uses 28nm die which runs much cooler which is a big deal for laptops.

*I don't think the new 600M series comes out until May (640M and 650M?).

Summary:
I recommend a laptop that has NVidia OPTIMUS technology and a 6xxM graphics chip.
