Well, $5K isn't unheard, given that that is my budget too...
In fact, I was pretty set with a MYTHLOGIC Nyx 7212 (Clevo P270WM) with a bunch of upgrades (i7-3930K processor, dual GTX 675 cards, others) - that is, until the delays from Clevo. Now I'm back to square one
I *want* to convince myself to go with Alienware, but I just can't do it; I went that way once already, with unhappy results.
get this the graphics card isnt amazeing but you can upgrade to amd 7970 or to nvidia gtx 680m without voiding the warranty and you can add another 16gbs of ram if you really want to and in the end youl get a beast machine for under 3k anyway its just my suggestion.
with it u can easily go to mythlogic shiva 7212 and have intel core -3930k and nividia quadro 4000m installed into your laptop... however i dont really see a point in building such a beast unless you are using multiple monitors frequently
