obviously way out of your budget.

i would also suggest a HP Envy 15-3017Tx Laptop 2nd Gen Ci7/8GB/1TB/Win 7 HP/1GB Graphics with Beats Audio & Sennheiser headphone: Compare, Review HP Notebook

There was a similar query to this on TDF, ask your friend if he has any specific requirement like passmark / others to run softwares like autocad. Above suggested laptops are all good he can choose.

although the best bet would be acer aspire series laptop because it has a SSD and a gt 640m

I've suggested him the hp Envy 15-3017tx.
Will it be good enough to serve the purpose? As in, is the gpu up to the mark?
