Hi guys I am looking for the following. If someone could help please :)

Price: ~$1000 AU.
What it will be doing: Gaming, School work, Game development using Unity 3D and a heap more.
Preferably being not too big but about the same size as a HP Pavilion Dv6.
I don't care which brands EXCEPT for Acer and HP. Please avoid them.

Thanks :D

PS Asus is a good brand and my local HN has some in there. (HN= Harvey Norman)

I had a look at the retail stores like Harvey Norman, JBHIFI, DickSmith and Officeworks which they all don't have any Nvidia 650M laptops, mostly there was 7670M. Your best bet is to buy it online from this store which is based in Melbourne however you can go there and buy it. If you can't buy it online then at JBHIFI, they are selling this laptop but the 650M from the Samsung laptop is still faster then the 7670M.

I can't buy online unfortunately. :(

Anything with the following specs will do:

CPU: Quad Core or higher but preferably a hex core if you can find a PC with that! (hex=6 core.)
RAM: 6GB+
OS: Windows 7 64 bit. Not sure on the version yet though. I wanted the pro version but HN don't sell it.

The link works for me....perhaps the site was down at the time you tried it.
Copied from the link just now:

The site was down. That's why it didn't work. It's a nice PC. I will say that. But with the keyboard it looks like they have a fair bit of resistance in the keys. Whereas in some PC's you simply just press lightly and the keys work. In others though you really need to PUSH on them to make them work. I'm not saying you really need to push on the keys but my HP Pavilion Dv6 has a nice keyboard. The Dell Latitudes also have a nice keyboard. Although I'm talking about the E5220 series. With the I5 processor.

Finding a hex core laptop is gonna cost you a fortune. Does it have to be from Harvey Norman? Can it from other retail stores?

No it doesn't have to be a Hex Core but if you find a cheapie let me know! Quad Core at the bare minimal. Dual Cores just can't handle what I do.

Did you had a look at the laptop at JBHIFI in my third post?

I'll look into it when I go to the coast in the holidays. I don't have a JBHIFI in my area unless I drive for an hour or two.

The Asus K55VD-SX068S is the best laptop with the latest quad core cpu and a dedicated graphics card from Harvey Norman.
