Very easy answer mate, Alienware or Republic of Gamers.

Alienware website: http://www.dell.com/ie/p/alienware-17/pd.aspx
I'm sure if you searched local computer shops near you or even Amazon, they will have the Alienware 17.

Republic of gamers: http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/Notebooks_Products/
Go for their 17" range as well, and same story for find a shop and if you can't find any near you, amazon will do fine as well.

Hope I helped :)

That's the thing with gaming laptops, price is your enemy believe me, took me years before I decided to forget laptops!

Anyway, here are 3 websites that will post to NZ that have customisable laptops:

1: http://www.xoticpc.com/custom-gaming-laptops-notebooks-intel-4th-generation-mobile-haswell-processors-ct-95_51_421.html

2: https://www.maingear.com/boutique/pc/configurePrd.asp?idproduct=1961
(Explore around all this site, there is more customisable laptops than the one I posted)

3. http://www.fraglabs.com.au/ (Very good site)

Just take into consideration, I don't know if you have a custom PC or not or if portability is a must for you but a laptop will be nowhere like the performance of a desktop gaming computer. Secondly, laptops can't be bought with separate parts and put together, it's just something nobody does so only most gaming laptop websites will be your option for customizing, but with customizing them comes a steep steep price!

Heh, that happened to me too. I realized that gaming laptops aren't as powerful as desktops and they're more expensive. Funny, isn't it?

It's just the way it is, in laptops they use mobile graphics chips which are nowhere near the performance of desktop graphics. But if you want to stay with laptops then the sites I mentioned and the laptops I mentioned are as good as laptops get.
