    a GT445M is no where near the same as a GTS450

    a GT445M is like a GT220 maybe, probably not even quite that good.

    a GTX460M is about on par with a GTS450 desktop card.

    I can't play games on a 15" screen. Personally I love my Asus G73, not to mention its sexy *** design.

    I played on both a sager 15.6" @ 1920x1080 and now on the G73 17.3" @ 1920x1080 and I can say that I hate carrying around this monstrous laptop that fits in no bag. The 15" screen was perfect.

    Don't buy from Best Buy. Look around on Amazon and NewEgg.

    I found a case for mine just fine. It is a little on the large size.

    Off topic: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834990198 Not that it would make lugging a 17" laptop around any more fun.

    On topic: Don't buy from best buy. They have an assload of crapware on the computers then rip you off to remove it (assuming you do not do it yourself). Spend the extra cash and grab a decent gaming laptop.

    I have an attache type case already, I am a backpack type of person and this laptop is very heavy compared to my last 15". I will stick with 15" from now on since there is no real reason to get a 17" for me.
