I am going to join an Undergraduate course in India. It has a rigorous curriculum. I'll be doing programming, and also would be a part of media club, so I want to handle do graphics designing, video editing and audio editing (I'll use a headphone, so I don't care about the speakers). So, what I need is a high end laptop under $2000 with easy portability, good config and which can run GTA V on Ultra (just setting this as a benchmark because, if something can run GTA V on ultra today, I have a feeling that it will probably last for at least 4 years with good performance). I'll also be doing research side by side and working on GSoC and ICPC. Maybe, I won't need to upgrade the 16 gig RAM. Ohh, and I'll need 1TB 7200 RPM at least and 256 GB SSD and I hate RAID config.

I picked this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152684
I like it. It's thin, has GTX 970M 6GB and it runs GTA V at high (except MSAA) without lag (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK3aDrhqrFE). But it has only 128 GB SSD. So, I don't know if that would be enough. Anyways, any other suggestions.

And I want it to be thin like the one I mentioned above...

[EDITED]: OK, I found it finally. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152812
It sits in the sweet spot and although it doesn't have 6GB 970M and 256GB SSD, I think I can deal with it. Probably, I'll not need more than 3 GB RAM. And in this one, I'll get Broadwell too... :) :D
What are your views on it?
