I would look into some of Asus stuff. I have a G 60 and its not bad, as far as laptop gaming is concerned anyway.

Sorry. Laptops and gaming just don't mix really well. Get a ThinkPad with NVIDIA or AMD graphics and buy an SSD, some RAM, and probably a better networking card but I think Intel's wi-fi cards are fine.

I would recommend one of the newer SB laptops. Specifically the Sager NP8130, Comes standard with the i7 2630QM (outperforms the the i7 940XM in synthetic benchmarks) 8GB's of DDR3 1333 and GTX 460M.

Price: $1172.73 (you might be able to find a better price from a diff reseller and have Xotic match it)
