Topic: Need a new laptop for school/gaming Purposes

I am looking to spend $1,000 - $1,100 total on a Laptop capable of running most to all modern games at high graphics while also being able to do 3D renderings such as blender or Maya. I plan to use this laptop quite a bit for gaming and also game programming intensive activities like rendering 3d worlds using rasterizers etc. I have already looked at the xm15 with the specs pasted below but it is a bit more pricey than I was looking for. I would like this laptop to last my 4 years in Game Programming school also. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

The laptop you have in mind is definitely good and will do the items you need. It's difficult because your budget is limiting you on items that you wish to have a high-end laptop for.
The good news is that the the latest next-gen hardware that is out (listed in your specs above) will do exactly what you need and should have no problem. Plus, you can always upgrade it in the future.

Hey guys, I recently purchased a Marauder level 3 last week, and it's currently being shipped. I was just wondering, does digital storm use OEM reference design graphics cards or specific brands [eg: Sapphire/XFX/HiS/EVGA] in their configs?
