    I need a computer fairly soon, and it needs to be like so:
    Price of 1500$, the less, the better.
    As powerful as possible, will be for multimedia and gaming.
    Needs to be a laptop.
    I found the ASUS K53SV-A1, and I think it is decent, but Im not sure if i can get better for the money. I had it out to 1,430 including an external hard drive with these specs:


    - 15.6” HD 16:9 LED Backlit Wide screen (1366x768) Super Clear Glare Type Screen
    - ASUS Zero Bright Dot (ZBD) 30 Day Pixel Guarantee - (Included on ASUS Standard NON-Upgraded Displays)
    - 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2720QM, 2.2-3.3GHz, (32nm, 6MB L3 cache)
    - Stock OEM Thermal Compound ( IC Diamond Thermal Compound - CPU + GPU Provided FREE with Processor Upgrade!)
    - nVidia GT 540M 1024MB PCI-Express GDDR3 DX11 with Optimus™ Technology
    - No Video Adapter
    - 8,192MB (8GB) DDR3 1333MHz Dual Channel Memory (2x4GB)
    - Standard Finish
    - - 1,000GB (1TB) 5400RPM (Serial-ATA II 3GB/s)
    - Combo Dual Layer SuperMulti DVDRW/CDRW Drive w/ Software--
