i'm leaning on the lenovo's high end model Y50 with the 860m, 16gbs of RAM and 4gbs of VRAM, i'm trying to find a 870m but i don't think i've found any under 1500 dollars,
i know there are some custom laptop brands but those dont deliver in the 2-3 week window i have to buy one.

any ideas? i just found MSI's GE70 with a 860m, but that has an i5, and i think i'd notice the drop from the i7 on my CAD programs and such.
any other ideas?

have fun my friend: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-GT70-Dominator-895-9S7-1763A2-895-17-3-Inch/dp/B00IMTQ6I6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401869186&sr=8-1&keywords=MSI+GT70

gtx 870M, and an I7 4800MQ (the next step up from the 4700) this is the 17.3' model,
the 15/6' model here: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-GT60-Dominator-424-9S7-16F442-424-15-6-Inch/dp/B00IMTQ5G4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401869239&sr=8-1&keywords=MSI+GT60

First, go to Xoticpc.com. Find there Sager NP8268-S. It comes with a GTX 870m, Core i7-4810MQ (Yes, 10, not 00), 8GB RAM, 750GB HDD (Upgrade to 1TB for $20), and many other features. Here is the link: http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8268s-clevo-p150sma-p-6987.html?wconfigure=yes

It starts off at $1287, an amazing price for the specs. It comes with a free Watch Dogs (Limited time), free cooling upgrades, a Blue Ray reader and DVD/CD reader and writer, etch. If you want to max out the experience, there are a couple of grades to get to $1500.

1) Add Windows 8.1
2) Add an Msata 120GB SSD
3) Upgrade to 1TB HDD
Now, you have an extra $40 of something close to that, to spend. Either:

1) Upgrade to 12GB RAM for $45 or
2) Get the "Deliver within 1-4 business days upgrade for $49 and finally
3) GTE the added padding during shipping upgrade for $40.

XoticPC.com delivers within 7-9 business days, so they are fast. However, if you're impatient, get upgrade #2. If you care more about the system's capabilities, get upgrade #1. If you care about the system ITSELF, get upgrade #3. Either way, you're ending up right around $1500. Whichever way you choose, you're good. And I DON'T recommend you get that MSI. MSI offers great quality performance, but one thing kills any chance of me ever getting one: Instead of Sager/ASUS/Alienware etch, they use a single fan solution, resulting in poor cooling. VERY POOR COOLING. I got the GT60 Stealth, and it literally, like, literally, "died" due to the heat overload. So, just a tip, never go MSI. However, they're new 3K edition laptop comes with a 3K resolution and dual fans, but unfortunately for you is priced at a costly $2000.

Hope I helped!
