Thanks Sailor, I appreciate the comments.

This is the one I'm kind of sold on: Toshiba Satellite w/ Intel Core i7 8GB 750GB HDD Windows 8    It's $770 @ Best Buy.

If I buy something like this, premade as it were, is it possible/advisable to switch out components in the future, such as the graphics card?  Best Buy guy of course says you can't always do that depending on compatability so buy the best thing now (assuming he wants the commission) but I can't drop $1,300 on a laptop.  I'd hoped to get, like, 75% of the way there and when I can pay for it myself get some upgraded hardware here and there.
