Assuming the entire box would weigh less than 5kg, it would cost 25 euros to ship something from the Netherlands to Portugal (I'm assuming you're there, because you want PT layout). So I'd figure other carriers and from other countries would cost about the same.
That Sager thing looks good for the money. I'd upgrade with an SSD, the 860M is a quite capable GPU. Especially if you have the Maxwell version. Any better and you're quickly getting into SLI territory, which generally pushes it outside of budget (and outside of your diagonal constraint). For me here in NL, the first upgrade over the 860M (870M) is 1500 euro without postage.

After snooping around, I remembered in the US the prices advertised never include taxes, so those 800€ are not the real price, particularly if it had to go through customs.
I have http://www.pwnpcs.co.uk/laptops/clevo-p150sm
Customized to reach 1230£, or about 1500€.
NVIDIA GTX 870M
Coming from the UK, so there should be no problems. It has no OS, but that's fine, I have a spare Win7 lying around.

If you were to buy the laptop you posted on post #20, that would be my exact laptop :)
Which is this: http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.p...el_name=NP7358
I highly recommend the Clevo/Sager models after buying mine, this one runs like a dream, and the performance and IQ is fantastic.
Just remember to pop a SSD in there!
I also got mine without Windows 7, which saved me some pretty bucks too.
Depending on where you buy from in US, there are some places that do include taxes in the price you pay, but it's almost always only specialty shops like these kind. The laptop I got I paid the exact price listed.

I was just commenting on the tax thing, I found it nice that I didn't have to pay tax when I bought the laptop :P
Though it's probably that they included tax in the base price, which is odd for US stores.
I would guess there's very little reason to import all the way from US if you are in Portugal! That's a hefty bit of cost I bet.
I think the only downer about my laptop is that it's a bit heavy. Comes in at a little over 6 pounds with the battery in it I think, which is about a pound heavier than my last laptop.
But then again it also has a lighty-up keyboard so who cares :P

Necro-ing this because I just bought my new laptop.
Here it is, it's the Clevo P150SM.
My particular configuration consisted of
Intel i7 4810MQ
Nvidia GTX 870M
8 GB RAM
500GB HDD, 7200RPM
Mirror's Edge on maximum specs, Crysis Warhead in Enthusiast, Far Cry 2 in Ultra High without breaking a sweat means I'm happy (I don't have anything newer to test, so far).

That is a gorgeous laptop. I hope you are able to get a SSD in it soon, they make the laptops sing :)
Congrats, well bought :)

The main SATA slot is empty now, which can be reached by unscrewing just two bolts. Nifty piece of engineering that. The rest of the components are also easily switchable, even the graphics card has a slot, just like the processor. No soldering here.

That's cool, I haven't opened up my laptop to see what is in it... same Sager/Clevo make... I presume it's neat and tidy too :D

That seems like a pretty good laptop, but I'm certain it would be way too expensive around here. I actually decided to bring my desktop along with me. I'm actually going to get myself a better GPU instead of going for a laptop. =D
