I need help finding beast laptop that is 15 inches and under $1,500.

Anything equal or above the nvidia gt 755m and a
screen resolution under 1080p is fine with me.

I've been looking at the Lenevo y510p and the ASUS N550JK-DS71T for a while now. Almost purchased the asus model because it was nice looking and sleek but saw that the GPU was a 850m with ddr3 vram and wasnt sure if was faster than the 755m with GRR5.

I got the Lenovo model with 16GB of ram for 1 thousand dollars on a sale. You might be able to find a better system for 1500, but you can save some money for some good peripherals.

lenovo y50
sager 7358
asus g550jk
sager 8268 - for $1350 you can have an 870M ( much better than everything else so far) or for $1650 an 880M (best single mobile GPU on market)
MSI GT60 dominator 424 - 870M
gigabyte p25w.
all these laptops are referenced in pricing from xoticpc.com.

arguably everything in this list (apart from the asus g550jk) is better than the SLI 755M y510p.
the most powerful would be either the sager 8268 or the MSI gt60 dominator
the best build quality would come from the gigabyte p25w
the lightest would be the n550jk.
the sager 8268 is available with backlit keyboard and mouse pad for an extra $40 in the form of the sager 8258.
all of these can be heavily customised - add an SSD etc. to your hearts content
the cheapest to begin with is the sager 7358, followed by the asus, then the y50 - the rest follow on in order of cost at stock level.
