I got my new custom laptop from Link and if you can order from them I definitely recommend them. I got something better than an Alienware M17x at less than half the price of one. Anyway, you should get any i7 CPU (the difference in CPU speed is somewhat overrated), I recommend at least 8GB RAM, I got mine with 16GB because I work in After Effects a lot, and get a Radeon HD, either 79** or 8*** series, they're a lot cheaper than the nVIDIA ones and you won't notice the difference unless you run a benchmark. Hope this helps.

The new 14" Razer Blade looks to be very promising as well as extremely portable with a measured battery life of up to 6 hours (probably way shorter if gaming but still nice to have for general web surfing).

Ah man, so far they are not shipping the blade to Australia :-(, thanks so much guys, having a good look at the moment, found a really decent place on the south side of Brisbane that has really reasonable prices for custom laptops.

Basically be careful where you through your money at, 16GB RAM systems are not worth it, 8GB is borderline. Since most games don't still utilize high amounts of RAM yet, spending all that cash on 16GB systems is not worth it, by the time games are fully 64bit only the system will be out of date.

And as said try to get close to 3ghz per core as standard, all these turbo boost features etc are not good.

I would get a SSD for the OS partition and another 7200 RPM (or higher) HDD for the rest instead of one large HDD (make absolutely sure it's not 5400 RPM). Also, as I said before, I like Radeon more these days because if you compare the latest Radeon and nVIDIA cards, some benchmarks will be won by Radeon and some will be won by nVIDIA but the Radeon cards will always be cheaper but in this particular case I like the GTX 780m because it's so new, I think they just released it two weeks ago.
