High end gaming laptop, what do you think of this deal?

First off I require laptops because I travel and when I do settle down a bit I live in rented rooms where I have to clear everything out once the rental period is over.

The laptop itself is a custom one using a MSI GT70 barebones as the shell. Specs are as listed:

17.3" 1920x1080 screen
nVidia GTX 780M 4GB
Latest Haswell Core i7-4700MQ
8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
1TB 7200rpm SATA3 HDD

For $1819. I've looked around and that is the cheapest price I can find for a system containing those parts that I wanted and provide reasonable shipping costs if they ship at all (I'm in Australia).

Has any one seen a cheaper price for a system with a 780M in there?

Actually xoticpc is where I got that figure from.
It's regrettable that I can't pair such a nice system with SSDs as those are very expensive per GB and would push it over my budget.

Buy SSD seperately when you got the cash.

Then install it yourself.

You could buy the laptop now, save up some money, buy an SSD on your own from an Australian shop and install it in the laptop. I'm sure a large laptop like that will have an available bay for an additional drive.

Meh. You can get a regular high-end laptop for about $1000 and play games just fine. Gaming laptops just cost too f***ing much.

Please name the specs of your so-called regular high end laptop. A link to where I can get it for about $1000 would also be greatly appreciated.
