I've heard mixed reviews on the Envys. I've experience HP 'quality' and customer service. I feel like no one has good service anymore, beside Apple. But then you pay for it too.
Anyone know of any other good shops that build custom laptops besides Sager?

I would try to dig up some details on asus build quality, as I know I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on it. If you are concerned about customer service and warranties. look into dell, they actually do cover accidental damage with their complete care plan. Throw it out the window in frustration, get a new laptop.
And to anyone who says you will be speaking to a non native english speaker with dell, needs to realize it is like that with almost all tech companies.
You can get complete care on alienware as well. And there is an option to turn off all the lights if you want too.2016 Rubicon built for the trails

Ya I've just read quite a bit on Anandtech and a number of other sites... HP Envy's aren't gonna' cut it for me.
Looking into Clevo's now, they look pretty top notch, performance wise.

I'm interested to hear other people's suggestions as well. I'm in the same boat but planning on getting a labtop in mid August that's mainly going to be used for school. Was leaning towards the 15 inch macbook pro but 1700+ is a bit steep for me at the moment. I've looked into Asus and they've got some good products but I'm not trying to send in the laptop away for repair if I need it for school and I don't want to deal with the viruses pc's have but then again I need windows to run a few programs that won't run on a mac...might just get a mac and install windows on it but I'm not sure.

Good thread, thinking of buying one and taking it as a gift to my country.

Yeah if all you want are specs, get a Clevo. It's a huge heaping pile of shit though, but it's fast on a straight.
