Hello every one...
so I want to buy a lap top, my first one... and i want it for  a normal Home work and multimedia...
 Like Office  docs,  Internet, music and fotos, movies, and very important play games (multitasking), I specially want buy it for when I'm not in home were i have my Game rig... (Like travels or work or play every where out home...)

I want a strong laptop but not a monster like alienware (style) I search something like HP Pavilion... (Style)....

I want a  17'' or 18'' Display because i want to see Full HD movies (1080p) and play games...

I'm gone need a very strong graphic card to play last games at the better resolution possible... and a strong and fast processor intel or AMD the important is that it is strong and fast for everything... 

 and a blu-ray rom (Bd +/-RW or not) dvd rw...

I have try to find something in the net Yet...
I really love (style) the HP Pavilion dv8t series
and try to find something customizable from dell...

So i really love the HP but i think that their processor and graphic card are not strong enough  even if i customize it the graphic still need to be the same (1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 230M) ...
and for the processor i have this options:
i5-430M
i5-520M
i7-720QM
i7-820QM

so i need to know what are my options....

and i need to know which processor and graphic is better for me...

i need a fast answer because i need to have it until next month
Thank You very much... and i wait for your answers...

you want a mobile gaming laptop which btw is an oxymoron.

Check out an ASUS g73 it is VERY good but pricey because of killer specs.

Cheaper option is on ebay a G50vx which has a gtx 260m+good dual core is like $600 but only 720p screen or 1680x1050.

18.4' screen-holy crap... Dude that thing is not mobile in any way. Probably weighs over 5kg. The hp envy is way better while not being so much of a desktop on wheels- I would get that or the g73.

for a gaming laptop-almost certainly ASUS. I would check ASUS website for some alternatives. I don't think you realize how big a 18.4' laptop is plus the battery life is non existent and it weighs a ton.

Honestly I would check out the MSI box which has a desktop graphics card in it but plugs into your laptop. Then you could but a cheaper laptop and enjoy it far more.
