MSI GX660R-060US NoteBook Intel Core i7 740QM (1.73GHz) 6GB Memory 640GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Broadway XT 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros:

-Radeon 5870, for more power, you need dual cards!
-1Gb DDR5, DX 11
-2x 320Gb 7200 rpm HDDs, that come stock in raid 0!
-Intel core i7 740 running 4 cores + 4 virtual = 8 threads!
-turbo mode, OCs automatically up to 2.93Ghz
-CPU is made in the USA!
-full 1080p video, widescreen HD
-6Gb DDR 1033, triple channel
-stock 9-cell battery
-high quality speakers

Cons:

The ONE glaring flaw that I see is: no illuminated keyboard. Gamers like to play in the dark, I know I do. Come on MSI, what would that have cost? I hate to have to plug my Logitech G15 into this laptop.

Other Thoughts:

After many hours of research, I can't find a better gaming laptop, even for $1K more.
If you want to spend more money for more performance, custom laptop sites will customize this laptop, for example they will install 2x SSD hard drives (for like $400 additional). Beware though, of leaving the comfort and safety of the #1 internet retailer, Newegg.
