It's out of stock and I'm not sure if it ships to your area, but.... - Recertified: ASUS G Series G60JX-RBBX05 NoteBook Intel Core i5 430M(2.26GHz) 16" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD±R/RW NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M

Don't worry about it being refurbished. It will arrive in like-new condition.

Based on your requirements another $200 would really help.

How about this for $800 ?

Acer Aspire 15.6" 3D Laptop - Intel Core i3 Processor 370M -NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M (AS5745DG-7025)

Bulldozer Will Rule. Got a question, try the Search Bar.
