Hey guys, I am trying to build a gaming laptop that will last me the next three years. I am not the smartest when it comes to laptops, but I tried to build something that from reviews and my research seems decent. I'm not really worried about the graphics card due to the late June ETA's. Thanks.

Uses? Looks okay from what I see. Could be better but never mentioned a budget.

I'm going to suggest the following (using Sager's Website customizer)
Change to 1600MHz ram, the speed (although not noticable) can be used by the processor/mobo
Add primary hard drive Crucial M4 SSD 128GB
secondary hard drive 750GB 7200rpm SATA 300
Comes to $2004 at Sager with the same options and my changes (same as XoticPC except Xotic gives a $60 cash discount)
