Well while looking for laptop i did come across a home based company that make their home laptop ..
Here's 3 that seem interesting ..
EUROCOM D750W Enigma
15-inch UXGA 1600-by-1200 pixels with Wide-Viewing-Angle (D700T) or...
yes it is Try to upgraded it later on and you'll have more problem then with the z71v
The only thing is the design wich is nicier on the Acer , but there's always something better on someone else laptop
