Regarding ASUS. The only thing I know is that their strong suit happens to be desktop motherboards. I don't know how they fair in the laptop department. They manufacture all sorts of shit though, even GPUs.
All I can really suggest is that you stay away from Acer. If you're willing to spend so much, I'd just get a nice fat Dell laptop. I know Dell is overrated and overpriced usually, but they do
build solid machines, provided you don't get their "trendy and sleek" models. A Dell laptop should last you a long time, especially an Alienware one. Those are usually pretty damn sturdy.
But you could always look at Lenovo. I've heard good things about their laptops as well.
