Well, I hope the convenience of that is worth more than $200 to you then lol

It's not that I want to spend $200 more, it's that I have to. Getting back from the topic, are there any laptops that fit my description? Suggestions on laptop backpacks and coolers would also be very helpful.

There's this one option you can try. Last time I went to HK(July 2011), there were some Alienware laptops on display(and most likely they have stock or you can ask when they'll have stock) at Broadway and Fortress in HK. You could probably just go there, and take a look at their laptops. They usually sell them with different specifications and if hey don't have it at stock, they will order it for you.

What you mean by ordering online, is that through Dell HK?

I'm not sure. As I said, it was my friend who ordered it. I just checked the alienware online store and apparently, there is not much storage options. (or maybe I was just blind) the closest I could find is 64GB SSD through mSATA and a 500GB HDD. I would prefer the SSD not to be mSATA and 64GB might be too small. Please confirm if there is no 128GB SSD and 750GB-1TB HDD option. If there is, that would save me a lot of trouble.
Feel free to give more suggestions because the more choices I have, the better. =D
Thank you

The Alienware site doesn't have option for a 128gb ssd, but it has an option for 256gb ssd and a 1tb hdd.

And what I was referring to earlier was you could go to HK yourself and try shopping there, you might have more options by seeing it in person. You can go to the local Broadway or Fortress or even go to their local computer markets at Wan Chai and Sham Shui Po. (Sorry if you already know this, I'm just trying to explain my point:D)

How exactly can you switch? I'm just asking so I would know what to do if I get it. Also, can I do this with any other laptop?

Oh, yea that would be a nice option.=) I'll go do that if I decide to go to HK. And yeah, wanchai, fortress and bradway is where I go if I need anything for my PC. Thanks for the reminder though.

Don't have a laptop suggestion for you, but if you decide to buy it in HK, don't forget to get yourself a 2-legged power brick -> wall cord, or an adapter if they only include local cords


that 3-legged crap won't do you any good once you get to the other side of the earth.

Another vote for the Sager NP9170 from me. And another link:

http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np9170-clevo-p170em-p-4342.html

The AMD Radeon 7970M is the current mobile gpu king. Battery life probably isn't great, but I'm sure it would make it through a couple of classes. Plus, Windows 7 power profiles are pretty extensive. You can turn just about everything down or off, if you don't need it, saving considerable power.

Also, switchable graphics is automatic, but you can specify how it behaves in the Catalyst Control Panel. By default though, if you open, say, a Word document, it will use the iGPU, but if you launch a game, it will use the Radeon.
