It's big and it's heavy but it's build quality and cooling are second to none that I have seen. It's priced nicely below your $1500 limit. I have the G53SW, which is the previous model in the line and it's a great laptop. It has room for two internal drives +ODD, which is somewhat rare in the 15" size. I wanted to have an SSD for booting and games and a mechanical HD for storage. Highly recommended.

You can get a very nice gaming desktop plus a non-gaming laptop for the same price as a gaming laptop. Your gaming on the desktop will be better with a nicer brighter screen and better performance. Your portable use on the laptop will be better because it will be lighter and cooler and the battery will last longer. The only time when a gaming laptop makes sense is if you go to very short LAN parties where the 20 minutes of packing/unpacking of desktops is a large burden.
Gaming laptops look cool, but they're priced too high to make any sense at all economically.
