I'm buying a 17" laptop, and read somewhere that Asus is currently one of the better brands, then googled up this thing (http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-k70ica1-p-2704.html):

Standard:
17" screen 1600x900 resolution
Intel P8700m Core2 Duo 2.53GHz
nVidia GeForce GT 220M 1 GB
4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM
Combo Dual Layer SuperMulti 8X DVDRW
320GB 7200RPM HD
Stock ABGN Wireless Card
Some shitty-ass webcam
Rinky-dink sound card
2 year warranty

Non-Standard:
Win7 Pro x64 (getting this instead of Home Premium so that I'll get XP mode)

Price tag: $1K

Used for:
Programming (Visual Studio, Eclipse)
Gaming (The Witcher is about the highest-end game I've currently got (and is unplayable on my current laptop))
Other shit

Questions:
What is a better vendor?
What did I fuck up?

Gracias

I have a 17" laptop. By laptop, I of course mean a penis.

Sweet sauce. (Free shipping to boot.)

I was considering holding off on Win7 Pro until I sign up for another class so I can get student pricing on it, but the only class I have left to take is dissertation defense and who knows when if ever I'll be ready to sign up for that, so fuck it, I'll shell out the extra hundred bucks now.
