its sad...laptops are over priced. you cant argue this...i have recently built a pc myself and i assembled the pieces from multiple sites (including tigerdirect,ncix,canada computers to name a few) and its specs easily top this laptops. the price with tax and shipping...2184.72. im sorry but im not willing to pay 5000 more for a mobile pc. hell, i even bought a carry case for my tower since its one of the newer aluminum ones. the lesson today...laptops are overpriced. go with a desktop, save some cash and get a better pc.

You are definitely better off building your own pc, but you know how people are. they like to throw down their money for something shiny and new, with a warranty, and a pretty coat of paint. It's a psychological thing.
And of course, most people are not capable of building their own laptop... Which makes you wonder why someone like that would even need a PC like this...
