I've got a HP 8710w right now which goes for about 300 usd on ebay! (max budget 650 usd)

I attempted to upgrade it to 3600m card which, well somehow I killed th emobo in the process, it's not responding to either battery or power at all now.

So I need suggestions for a laptop model in the same pricerange, with equivalent or better specs!

Current specs

8710w
CPU 2,4ghz core 2 duo
4gig DDR2 ram
nvidia quadro fx 1600m (upgradable to 3600m)
1920x1200

Priority is screen resolution and UK/scandinavian layout on keyboard.
gpu power is more important than cpu, anything with 2ghz and two cores is enough.

I also need to be able to have it here by next friday, at which point I fly to japan!

Very thankful for any help I can get!
