Default Suggest a Laptop

I'm in the market for a laptop. I need one for school work and some gaming. I want to keep the price around the $700 mark. The screen needs to be at least 15.6". Numpad is a plus. Any suggestions?

I have the Dell XPS 15 and it performs great. Runs Diablo 3 at high settings perfectly. Best bang for your buck that I could find!

Pretty much except I have the i7 and added an extra 2Gb of RAM. It comes with a Subwoofer underneath and sounds amazing. I've had mine for 1.5 problem free years.
