Hi. I've been looking around for a laptop for a few days now, and am having a hard time finding something I really quite like, and is reliable.

My budget is approximately $700~$750, however if it's really worth the buy, I'm willing to extend that up to $800~$825.

I'm personally not very fond of plastic-built laptops, thus thrives my love for ASUS laptops. Many of their designs have been incorporating a nice, somewhat uni-body, brushed aluminum look. I've taken a glance at Samsung laptops, and they've met my fancy, aside one thing in particular:

The laptop must also use dedicated graphics, such as a GeForce 630M, or anything equivalent. I am restricted to under a 16" screen, where 15.6" would be my preferred size, but am willing to shrink down to 14".

Multiple times now, I've found a laptop that I find to be suitable for my needs, but thereafter find that it's using integrated graphics -- what a buzzkill.

This is the laptop I really want to get my hands on from ASUS.

This is the Samsung alternative that I really liked, but was disappointed with the integrated graphics:

I'm definitely looking for suggestions. Thanks, to those who help or recommend laptops!

I actually quite like the looks of that laptop! I'll continue my research from that, but it seems to be well built and very future proof in terms of what I need from a laptop. Thanks!
