Got the money a few days ago. Pulled the trigger today on a nice Alienware M17x R4, used but in excellent condition. Here's the specs.
17" screen Full HD
8 GB RAM (going to upgrade to 16 myself)
AMD Radeon 7970M graphics
256 GB SSD
750 GB 7200 RPM secondary drive
Blu-ray combo drive
Killer wireless card
Windows 7 Professional
Still under warranty
All for the very reasonable price of $1600. Not bad considering the same setup configured new is over $2400.
It wasn't quite as nice as the Malibal Satori 170em I had configured, but that one cost $2000, so I saved a few hundred going with the Alienware. The money I saved will be going towards a next-gen console, possibly the PS4. Either way, I'm set for gaming for a few years anyway. Should be fun
