The VRAM isn't really important in a gaming machine...I mean yea it is, but 3GB w/ a GTX 570MOBILE gpu?3gb vram, sweet!! Finally a laptop that can replace a desktop. If it's under $1500 I might be interested, but i'm thinking it's gonna be in the $4000 - $5000 range. Guess just have to wait and see. Definitely have to go with the 1080p screen for sure. Going with anything else doesn't make sense. Now if only it has 3 monitor outputs for 3d surround, that would be awesome.
