    Oh, look, a generic laptop in an aluminum shell! And with a craptastic 768p screen to boot, for only 699$!

    Get a 15R SE instead. You will benefit from having a Radeon, FHD display, backlit keyboard and stronger CPU for the same price.

    Inspiron 7000 is the successor of the thicker, flimsier Inspiron 15R. FHD is available in option, along with 750M, SSD. Also, backlit keyboard comes stock with all versions. Oh, and did I say it's thinner and looks _way_ better?

    I say wait for Inspiron 7000 mass availability (perhaps 1-2 weeks again?). Hopefully it scores decent reviews. :)

    Only the 17 inch version has 1080p/750M. And for a FHD display, it costs 1249$, which is absurd, you could get say, a Clevo W370ST with better specs for the same price. Or a Lenovo Y510p for a lower price (same weight, same specs with SLI support).

    If you don't believe me i can post some screenshots of Dell's website:

    While it's not up on the website yet, the Inspiron 15 7000 was announced to have a 1080p + discrete graphics option. When I chatted with a dell representative they said that they don't have any firm date but that it will still be available in the future. Not sure what that means.

    It would be extremely helpful if you fill out the sticky that Tmets links to.

    We can't give you anything close to a meaningful recommendation without such info.

    The fact that Dell doesn't offer a decent display right off the bat is already a problem. Not necessarily 1920x1080 resolution, just a decent display with a reasonable resolution for the size (think 1600x900 in 15.6" -- something a bit less netbook-esque -- though 1600x900 does get to be on low side for something as large as 17.3") and decent contrast/quality (which is lacking with almost all LCD panels made for laptops that are 15.6" with 1366x768 resolution, 17.3" with 1600x900 resolution, etc). In a day and age where you can expect a decent display in a $300 tablet, one should at least be able to expect a somewhat decent display in a laptop costing more than twice as much. The display in the Inspiron 15R Touch, as currently available, is not a "decent" display -- it's actually pretty bad.

    A good direct alternative to the Inspiron 15R Touch, that gets you a decent (actually, pretty good) display is the ASUS Q501LA: Asus 15.6" TouchScreen Laptop 6GB Memory 750GB Hard Drive Q501LA-BBI5T03 - Best Buy

    But whether this model is a good choice for you is yet to be determined. Filling out that form will do wonders.
