Lightbulb Looking for a great laptop

I have a budget of around 1500$. I am trying to buy a laptop not build one from pieces.
If you guys could help me find a laptop or you know a laptop that would be awesome.
Specifications I am looking for
i7 2.2+ ghz processor
Nvidia gtx 500+ 1gb graphics card
4+ gigs of ram
Sata hard drive ( I have an external 500gb already )
Nothing like mouse or anything. I have a 6000 dpi mouse already and a 47" tv.
screen size 14" or 15" is perfect

I highly recommend AGAINST ANYTHING Sony. They do not support their hardware, they treat people like idiots, etc. First hand experience with them both personally and professionally, and I have to strongly urge you to look elsewhere.

Your best bet would be to configure a Dell Inspiron 15 as you need it, they have everything you want. Otherwise there's some models on Newegg that will fit the request as well.

Og not to be rude but I purchased a sony just now and it's a cracking laptop and it's really really worth the money I spent on it... you can always purchase it under an ebayer shop which has warrenty , he deals with the hardware not sony..

Dell on the other hand are really nice, strong and tbh never purchased anything better then a dell laptop.. only 1 problem I had with tell is the Sata to IDE converter as I needed a second harddrive and for my model (1700 vostro) they wouldn't send me a interceptor ? i think it's called , because it was a hard part from china, I had a bad problem with them once and it was so awkard to talk to them, I just dropped the phone and had to just deal with having 1 harddrive instead of two..all in all their a great laptop

Toshiba I've heard tho are the best built ones and great customer care..
