Hey is ASUS any good anymore? Hows there build quality in comparison to the past? I know they used to be great, better than APPLE.

I found an ASUS N65vz-es71
Specs:
17-3610QM
650m 2gb gddr3
4GB- can upgrade to 16gb :D
500GB HDD
all for $799

What I like is the aluminium body and the CPU/GPU will upgrade the ram to 8GB or 16GB, and put in a SSD with the HDD or replace with SSD.

Also looking at Lenovo, what do you think?

anyways you may have already considered this but i thought i would say something to be sure. can't tell you how many friends i have that got pissed ther mobile gpu wasn't even nearly close to desktop specs. honestly i find the labeling both nvidia and amd use for mobile chips to be misleading.

LOL I know bro! I have a reference 680 love it with my i7 rig :) I guess Im asking more about reputable brands, and great specs for the price, a miracle lol! Wish I had a little more cash, but this is what I can afford.
