My System Specs

Default Best lappy for under $1500

Buying a new laptop this week- I prefer ASUS, Toshiba, or Alienware and it will be used for occasional gaming.

My wife will be the primary user and she doesn't want a huge screen - prefers matte finsih but not essential.

Also- are there any great deals on right now anywhere?

Thanks!

Asus G51J in terms of versatility and gaming..15.5" 1920 x 1080...a tad over $1500

Of course I'm biased, but in reality I was also looking for the "best" Notebook for $1500 and found it ;)

Matte finish is hard to find. I know the Thinkpads have a matte finish, though.

What's too big for the wife?.... That came out rather dirty. Nice.
