Default Inneed of a Gaming Laptop

Hey yesterday my 2-3 year old MacBook Pro Classic crashed and i'm in need of a new Gaming Laptop. My budget is $1500, which is still a little more than I have or lied to spend.

My requirements:

Intel Core i5 or i7
Min. 2.4 Ghz
1400x900 or bigger
Min. 4GB RAM
802.11n wifi
500GB HDD at 7200rpm though 5400rpm is OK.
HDMI or DVI out so I can stream
15-17 inch screen.

One minor requirment that would be nice is the laptop to have good looks.

I can't get a desktop computer because my family and I is always on the move.

Here's a pretty nice one. It meets just about all of your requirements. There's also some similar, slightly cheaper models on newegg.
