My budget right now is between $700-1100 range. I've been looking at different laptops and everything under $700 seems to be lacking in a large array of areas. I've heard the MSI laptops are good and I've read numerous horror stories about the Y-series laptops. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion rolli. I ended up going with the ASUS ROG GL551 Series GL551JM-EH74 gaming laptop. I've read nothing but great reviews over the overall quality. I opted for the 256GB SSD since I have dozens of drives laying around not being used.
