after a lot of research i have decided to get the asus g73jh ( thanks to d3p for all the help, youre the best bro :cool: )

This is the config :

1. i7 720qm
2. hd 5870 1gb
3. 500gb x 2 raid hdd
4. 1600x900 screen ( 17.3" )
5. 8 cell battery
6. 8gb ram
7. windows 7 home premium

i can upgrade the ram to 16gb, and change both the hdd to ssd or 1 hdd and 1 ssd. (later)


and the cherry on top is that i get asus india warranty. no hassles :)

i have made up my mind on getting this, if anyone here has some suggestions to make about any other models which match these specs please suggest.

This laptop is costing me close to 900 $

Its better to get Y500 from US, better performance..... GT750M > GT650M> GT740M > HD5870M
IdeaPad Y500 Laptop | Lenovo (US)
It has 3rd gen i7, 15.6" FullHD display, has mSATA port(you can add SSD)

or how about Y410p or Y510p(starts at $989) which has 4th gen i7 processor
IdeaPad Y410p High-Performance 14" Multimedia Laptop from Lenovo | Lenovo (US)
IdeaPad Y510p High-Performance 15.6" Multimedia Laptop from Lenovo | Lenovo (US)

you dont get warranty for y400 series in india. hd 5870m ~ gtx 660m > gt 740m and im not getting my laptop from usa.
 
If u r getting it from India, then get Samsung NP550P5C S05IN. It should cost 57-59k locally.....

or

Else wait for companoes to refresh their line up with 4th gen processors..... Price of 3rd gen processors will also come down at that time

First gen processors heated up quite a lot. Apart from it, 17" will be too heavy, but never mind if you can manage it, but do think about the prior.
