My budget for the new computer is: 1500-2100

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Internet, School Work, Gaming, Lots of Multi-tasking

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Latest Games, Office 2010

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Call of Duty MW2 and B/Ops

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? No! This is the promary funtion of the computer....to multi task lots of programs at once without closing them out.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? No.

I wanted to ask about buying a custom laptop. Does anyone here have experience buying custom laptops from these sights such as Deluge, buydirectpc, puget, cyber power pc etc? What is the best company to buy a custom laptop and why? I was going to custom build an HP since they are inexpensive and will give me the latest sandy bridge i7 and SSD options, but I'm looking at other options now. I dont game alot, but I do play COD, I mainly will be browsing severl web pages (tabs) while listing to music while typing a paper etc WITH ALL PROGRAMS RUNNING. Who do you think I should go with and what specs?

The Asus G73JH is an amazing line up, it's the best I have been able to find in the 1,500 dollar price range after several weeks of search.

If you truely needed more power then there is the battalion series, however, those are more expensive; look up some gameing videos on youtube to get an idea of it's performance. I reccomend the Asus G73JH-X5 it's the best in the line for the price. Here are the stats if you need anything explained just ask.

Intel i7-720QM (1.60 GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz)
8GB DDR3 1066MHz , 4 SODIMM Sockets, up to 8GB
640GB (320GB x 2) 7200RPM HDD; Blue-Ray Disk Combo Drive; 802.11 b/g/n
ATI 5870 Graphics with 1G GDDR5; Windows Home Premium 64-bit Operating System
17.3-Inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) LED Display; 2.0M Webcam; 1 YR Accidental Damage Warranty Included
