Option 2 and 3 are both good, don't even consider Alienware.

They're not bad but they're kinda overpriced.

Yea, option 2 is basically the same thing but bigger hard drive on option 2 than Razer I believe.   And option 2 is cheaper than a razer at least the one I found.

Option 3 works good for you with FS13?  What kind of frame rate do you get with a lot of mods?

I'm kinda partial to the Lenovo Y50 series, but I use it for more than *just* gaming  ;D

I've not had good experiences with ASUS laptops, they tended to either die within 2 weeks or were broken to begin with, but that was five years ago. One would hope they're doing it better now. Alienware's tech support went down the tubes after Dell bought them and started outsourcing customer support...

Well all I finally bit the bullet today and got a new laptop.   Went with the Lenovo Y50 series and very impressed so far.
