Laptops IMO are for work/movies/light light gaming. Hence why I have a 2006 beat-up old Macbook Pro that cost me like $1000 new.

I would spend 3500 on a laptop if it were under had a great gpu, a terabyte or more of SSD, 8 gigs of ram, matte screen, super fast internal wireless, ridiculous battery life, and they keep all of that under 12 inches.

if I had money to blow, maybe.
But I would rather save the money, spend 900 of it on a Lenovo Y560 and be able to play games on slightly lower settings.

I spent about 2k for a g73sw-a1 with a 3 year warranty

I do not regret it. I have no way of putting a desktop in a semi truck so this computer works great.

as for 3500 no way!

spend 2k and get another in 2 years

Yes.


But I wouldn't get a 130W processor in a lappy though, especially since it doesn't offer any gaming benefit over current mobile sandy bridge processors.
This. According to Notebookcheck, the slowest mobile Sandy Bridge i7 quad matches an i7-920. If anything, I'd go with the "lesser" models with a lower wattage CPU that pulls the same performance for less money and heat. You'd lose your dual GPUs but still, the GTX 485m is like a GTX 460 in a laptop. What's not to love?

So, I retract my previous statement about buying it. But to all the people who keep poking at the crappy battery life, here's something to think about:

These types of computers are called DTR, Desktop Replacement, laptops. They are NOT bought for their battery life, but for a greater ease of access and are a less hassle to deal with. Setup is simple, as all you need to do is plug it into the wall, power on, connect the mouse and go.

Also, the link showed me something rather interesting too. The fastest mobile solution SB CPU was equal to the 2500K at stock speeds. Interesting no?
