Know of a laptop with these specs?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a laptop for a very specific customer.

They want:
an i7 (at least i5)
4-6GB of ram
at least 17.3"
1080p display
Weigh < 10 lbs
Backlit keyboard

I ordered the Toshiba X505-Q898 but found it a little too heavy and returned it.

Assuming a high end dedicated GPU is needed, considering your Toshiba had one. How about these -

Off the top of my head: ASUS G73JW or JX (One comes with an HD 5870, other is a GTX 460).

The one with the HD 5870 is cheap, but if money is not an option the 1.5Gb VRAM on the GTX 460 is a plus (Versus the 1 Gb on the HD 5870)

Thats not very specific. Theres hundreds of laptops that will fit that description. Give us a price or more details.

Really? I couldn't find many with those specs.

Price range is right around that $1800 mark. Nothing definite.

Maybe, I should have clarified better but the laptop doesn't need to be super high end as far as CPU/GPU combo goes. Just something that will last a good 3-5 years.

The biggest constraints are these:
at least 17.3"
1080p display
Backlit keybord.

Wait for Sandy Bridge laptops to hit the market after the fix, buying last years technology is going to be a waste at this point. Asus and Alienware both have backlit keyboards, as do the HP Envy models. There might be others, but that's not a common spec.
