Need help finding a particular Laptop!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'm looking for a laptop with some particular specs. I would prefer it to be either Asus, Toshiba or MSI. As far as what I need: It needs to be an i7 cpu, at least 8GB of ram, the size of the HDD is not important, but I NEED it to have 2 HDD slots as I'm planning on adding an SSD, also it needs to have nvidia graphics.
Now as far as price goes, I would prefer it if it stayed within the 1300-1400$ range. I know this is pretty specific but that's why I'm asking for help

Thanks in advance for any help

or if you are willing to dish out a bit more cash for a GT560M

I give you fair warning though, getting to the hard drive slots is a pain in the butt (typing from a G53J)

Thanks for the help!
And are you absolutely sure the first one has 2 HDD slots?

"The G53SW actually has two hard drive bays, though most configurations only come with a single drive."

You can put a second hdd/ssd in just about any laptop, you just have to take out the optical drive and replace it with an "hdd caddy". You can get them off of ebay for your chosen laptop model. For example, here is one for my laptop: http://shop.mobileweb.ebay.com/searc...+caddy&x=0&y=0

I think the important question now becomes what size screen do you want?
