I'm basically looking for the most power I can get for $900. If I do a search for powerful laptops, I always only find gaming laptop recommendations. Though I believe that the money spent on an expensive GPU can be utilized better i.e. other hardware. Really the only requirement is that I can hook it up to two monitors.

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply. That model actually looks amzing for that price. I could even turn a blind eye on the resolution. So before I place the order, that is about as good as it gets for a max budget of $900? Just seems odd that there is no "better" config of I'd put down $300 more than the linked model costs. It's on sale yes, I do realize that

Yes max $900. Well really that's $680 in US dollars so your not getting much.

If you spend $900-$1000 in U.S. value on a laptop then yes you will be able to find a 1080P quad core i7 laptop fairly easy.
