  1. I am in the search for a laptop with a good fairly high end graphics card. Preferably I would like an i7 quad core with an nvidia gt 555m or better. My budget is ~$1300-1400 including the os (Win 7 Pro). I am planning on running Photoshop, Flash, and Dreamweaver on the laptop. I will also use it for very minimal gaming. 500gb or more would be nice for a hard drive. I would only get an ssd is it is within my budget. As for RAM I would like 4gb minimum. 6-8 would be ideal. I am not really set on any brand in particular. I will gladly accept any recommendations, because I have never bought a laptop before, I have only had one through work.

    I just signed up to help you...

    I am thinking of buying this laptop (XPS 17)... best I've seen so far (for my preferences)

    In your case, it would cost about $1450 for the following specs.:
    PROCESSOR 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-2630QM processor 2.00 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GHz
    OPERATING SYSTEM Genuine Windows® 7 Professional, 64-Bit, English
    HD DISPLAY 17.3" HD+ (900p) LED Display with 2.0MP HD Webcam
    MEMORY 4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 Memory
    VIDEO CARD NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 555M 3GB graphics with Optimus
    HARD DRIVE 500GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive
    SERVICE PLAN 1 Year Limited Hardware Warranty (Shipping not included. 14x7 phone support) edit
    OFFICE SOFTWARE Microsoft® Office Starter: reduced-functionality Word & Excel w/ ads. No PowerPoint or Outlook edit
    BATTERY OPTIONS 56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery
    SECURITY SOFTWARE McAfee Security Center with VirusScan, Firewall, Spyware Removal, 30-Day Trial

    (sorry for the mess)

    I can't give you the link because there are several links for the Dell XPS 17 (just go to, FOR HOME, laptops and minis... you know how to search)... Also, try looking at the HP Envy 17'' laptop at

    Good luck,
