Need laptop with compatible specs? Toshiba Qosmio ugliest Laptop in the world!

My last three laptops were Toshiba Qosmio.  I liked them.  

I almost bought the Qosmio X770 LOADED with features. Then I saw the case.  It is disgusting.  Even PC Mag says case is awful.,2817,2390649,00.asp#fbid=ZH6V-yd2CGd:

A laptop's design is as much a part of its gaming persona as the parts it runs. Unfortunately, the texture the X775 uses over its gunmetal-gray top resembles an artsy adaptation of scratch marks, and the bit of red paint applied to the back of the laptop and logo seems downright sloppy.

Why buy a Cadillac in a color you'll hate everyday?

Where can I buy a laptop with similar features?

Note the huge HD capacity and top of the line graphics processor.

I'm a web developer, graphic designer.  I'm also a gamer.  Purchased and would like to play Witcher 2 w/o dialing back graphics.  I don't need 3d features or blue ray.  I want an HDMI plug.  I also need to work in lighted areas - so no glare is hugh.  I'm 55 so a big screen helps.

I can spend a little more ... but I'm not wealthy.

    I also have a 15" Mac Powerbook.  With bifocals - I can see it pretty well.  And I find myself reaching for the Mac because it's lighter.  Maybe I could live with a smaller screen.  

    What do you fellow-gamers think?

    I travel between three different homes/offices - so non-laptop PC isn't an option.  :)

    I have a Dell xps 15 that is pretty speedy. And they don't look half bad. The 15 you have to tale out the dv drive to add a second hard drive. However I thin the 17 has room for two drives.
