I'm in the market for a new laptop but trying to find one that actually ticks all the boxes for me is proving frustratingly difficult. Requirements: + Available to buy in Ireland/UK/Europe + 15.6" + 1600x900 resolution or better. 1920x1080/1920x1200 preferable. + Discrete GPU: nVidia GTX560M/AMD6950M or equivalent + i5/i7 Mobile + 4-8GB RAM + Budget: ~£1100 but the cheaper the better. Reasons: + I need a 15.6" laptop since 17" is just too big to carry around every day (and I carry mine around a lot, working as a lecturer/researcher at university) and anything smaller than 15" doesn't feel practical to me for getting work done without an external monitor. + 1440x900 is the resolution of my current laptop and that just isn't enough for my typical usage (audio software, programming IDEs, etc.). I want a sidegrade at least in this regard, if not an upgrade. + I like to game on my laptop when I can and I feel that the more commonplace GT555 GPU occupies that middleground between integrated graphics and discrete graphics where it isn't really worth it and falls a good deal short of the GTX560M, despite being only slightly cheaper. (The GTX560M can supposedly get BF3 playable on High, whereas it's only just about doable on Medium with the 555; for instance). I would have thought this kind of system would be easy to find, but that's not proving to be the case at all - Mainly because of the proliferation of the horrible 1366x768 resolution in the laptop market. Anything from Dell with a decent GPU is either a 14" @ 1366x768 or a 17" @ 1920x1080 - Neither of which suit. Asus have some nice models in the N55 range that I was taking to Bindi about last week, but they lack the GPU grunt (GT555... ). An Asus G53SX would probably be ideal if I could find one at a reasonable price and in-stock; but I can't seem to do that! MSI have the ideal model in the form of the GT683 (i5, GTX560M, 6GB ram) but those have gone EOL for some reason and I can't find them in-stock for love nor money. Komplett.ie have 1 in stock but I won't be able to buy until December and it'll probably be gone by then! And I refuse to buy anything from Acer. Ever. Years ago I bought my current laptop from a company in the UK called Rizeon who used to sell custom Compal/Clevo whitebooks along the same lines as Rock laptops or xoticpc in the US, but Rizeon disappeared in the last few years and I can't find any other companies in Europe who offer custom whitebooks at reasonable prices. I know I'm being awkward with some the boxes I'm trying to tick here, but my demands aren't that outlandish and the MSI models show that the very kind of laptop I'm looking for was available at some point. Why not now? How hard must it be to get a SandyBridge-era laptop with a GTX560M and a decent 15.6" screen better than 1366x768? Any links/brands/etc would be very welcome. Bindi, any chance you could get me an N55 with a GTX560M? Edit: ------ I can spec up precisely the model I want from PCSpecialist.co.uk. Has anyone else had any experiences with them? Good/bad?
