Well, I've built a custom PC
last year. But I'll need a notebook for my study..
So I've been searching for the past few days. The biggest con is that I'm limited to Dutch/European resellers.
Somehow those notebook graphic are all better than my PC's
Probably because my PC has its integrated and 2 PCIe x16 slots for expansion.
Now that I think of it, I seriously need to expand the RAM..
Anyway.. Here's what I came up with from a Dutch reseller:(translated to English)

I didn't pick any Windows OS and therefore there's no OEM cr@p on it either.
Still got the Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit I used for this PC and I can probably run Linux on it too.
Hmm.. I'd rather have it cost around €1000.
Not sure if the extra year carry-in warranty is necessary...
And I have no experience with the €60! Pixel warranty at all.
Those two would save almost a hundred €. Will you share your stories and advice?
Will be needing this in September so there's plenty of time... (for prices to drop
