So here they are folks with price and specs. No news from Acer and the other ones I found not to being as powerful as these ones and close to the $2k price point. I will need soon a powerful laptop for work using [video editing, photoshop, dreamweaver, fireworks, flash, AS3, iphone Dev, maya, vue d spirit] and of course for FF14 for when it comes out next year. I don't plan on buying another laptop for the next 3 years, which is when possibly a new chip technology might come out by then.

so yea, I'm not rich but this is something I will be using day and night so any advice which one should I get or what would you recommend?
