I bought Asus 6 month ago, I am very very happy of hardware (under Opensuse
12.1, original software Ubuntu was buggy).

This is not 17", but have a look, 239€ :

I'm looking for a more "professional" laptop. Definitively one with a Intel
i7.

Anyway thanks for your suggestion.

Check out the "new" Dell Inspiron 17R.

You can get an ivy bridge i7 with integrated graphics only, so no Optimus problems. Memory up to 8Gb (but people reported that 16Gb works as well), dual HDDs. The only problems I see with it is that

a) the max resolution is 1600x900, and to get full hd one need to got for the 17R "Special Edition" which is only available with NVidia Geforce 650M with Optimus technology, and
b) amazingly, it only has a 100Mbit etherner card - no gigabit ...
