    ASUS are ok, but their service sucks. If all you're comparing is raw performance you're basically asking for it. ASUS is trying to build a brand in the US, they over clock their review units, they are inconsistent.

    I'm not even talking about reviews! On pure specs it destroys the Envy for value/performance

    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?

    For $340 CAN I got a similar laptop. They're dime a dozen. It's great for work.

    But it simply isn't in the same galaxy as the computers I'm looking at. Video editing crushes my current laptop. Having Photoshop + anything else open? On its knees.

    Ah! You caught me mid-edit in my post.

    While I tend to agree, the video rendering and gaming side of me is torn. How would you rate the build quality? I'm not crazy about the looks. I did love the feel of my Macbook Pro.

    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.

    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.

    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.
