  1. Guys I am looking for a new notebook, and I have general idea of what I want, but I am unable to find anything comparable so far (in reasonable price range, I.e. about 1,500$). Here are the specs which I've in mind:

    i7 47xx Processor
    8GB RAM (or higher)
    GT760M (or similar range GPU)
    SSD Boot drive + 1 TB HDD
    15.x 1080p display
    Windows 8.x64

    I have no preference for any brand, although, in last few years I've bought HP notebooks, generally because I have good connections there in case there is some issues ;)

    Specify dual or quad core CPU.

    47xx series and above are quad core parts.

    Intel actually has quite a few i7-4XXX dual core mobile processors. Check it out.

    Ah yes, so they are. :) Thank you for pointing out something I was lazy to check!

    I don't have purchasing advice as I'm not USA person, but usually it's a lot cheaper to just buy a dual-bay laptop with HDD, and purchase a SSD off newegg. The upgrades to SSD are pretty expensive usually.

    Yes but until @Archean pointed it out, I didn't know the 47xx's (which was specified) are all 4 core. The 45xx and 46xx are dual.

    I didn't even realize he posted i7-47XX chips. I looked right over the 7 lol.
