When you finally get your specs, just run another option - Clevo. These guys spend their money on cooling (=laptop life) and hardware rather than marketing which is why you probably haven't heard of them. Chances are for the same $ you'll get much better specs eg 780m gtx (and less well advertised quality cooling and other innards).

Clevo are the ODM, OEM's include deviltech, pcspecialist.co.uk etc. I used to be a Clevo fanatic because they supported their laptops for ages so you'd get BIOS for eg new GPUs or CPUs that you could fit yourself. Recently though, they seem to be cutting back on that, and the cooling in my last laptop was good, but not the 'oh wow excellent' it's been for the last 8 years.
