Laptop
 
Guys,
I'm in the market for a good, cool looking laptop. Alienware looks the best to me, but waaay out of my price range. Any similar companies that are cheaper?
I have like $650 to spend on a laptop
I want:

i5 or AMD FX/similar
6+GB ram
750GB HDD or larger
Light effects
1GB GFX card

-Matt

Could look into Asus; my G73 treats me well. Bought a refurbished G73jh version off of Newegg for ~$800 last year.

~$800 is too much $, and I've had an awful experience with Asus. 2 broken desktops and a paperweight of a netbook later...

I was just giving an example of a price; the laptop is worth around 1100, but I got it refurb'd for cheaper.

I've never really had any problems with any Asus computers or products - all have been stellar.

If not Asus.. I'd look into Lenovo then. Their Ideapads are a little cheaper, but not as good as their Thinkpads.

Are you wanting it primarily for gaming?
