MSI Laptop GT Series GT780DXR-200US Intel Core i7 2670QM (2.20 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1.5 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M 17.3

Pros: GTX-570M GPU, I7 2670QM, 16GB of ram is like taking the performance of 4 my older Toshiba Satellite P105 and combining them into 1 laptop.
Quality Construction
Vivid screen for a matte finish
Amazing sound for a laptop
Steelseries keyboard
Quiet fans until needed with the TDE feature.
Light weight for size.
Lots of storage and Blu-Ray burner built in.

Cons: Raid-0 setup performs surprising slow but it is faster than just a single standard hard drive.

I broke the raid array and installed a Crucial M4 128GB for OS and kept the other 750GB WD drive for storage, still much more storage than my older 200GB 7200rpm drive in my toshiba.

Other Thoughts: I actually don't game much anymore but I do travel often and program from the same laptop so I went looking for the best performance to cost ratio I could find with a 17"+ screen. I had ordered a Dell XPS-17 but due to problems with shipping timings I cancelled that order and went with the MSI and so far I am extremely happy with the choice. The unit has taken everything I have thrown at it so far and since the install of the SSD has been even better. I haven't noticed any flex of keyboard or any of the other problems which were related to previous models with the steelseries keyboard.
