That seems reasonable for the price. If anything I can recommend, I would suggest for you to take a look at a similarly equipped ASUS.
Have you considered Alienware (by Dell) ?
Thanks for such a fast reply! But yes, I have been looking at Alienware as well, since they were my first choice, but to try and match the specs of the Lenovo I'd have to modify a M14x which brings to price up to $1,475 (The M17x has a LOT bigger screen but also costs around $1,675).
As for Asus I've never really looked into any of their models, I'll have to do that now. Are there any specific ones you had in mind?
