A DTR Laptop is a laptop classified with a relatively high end GPU and CPU with at least a 17" screen. The size denotes more than what's under the hood. My Qosmio is an 18.4" behemoth and I love it. I wouldn't, and won't, go below 18.4" machines again after using this thing. The screen is to die for. However the setup there would run you about 3.5-4K easy.
If you want something good and big, go Malibal.
The Veda P180HM
is currently having a deal for a free upgrade to one 6970M from the stock 560M. And crossfireX for the 6970M is the same price as the 560M SLI for easily double the performance.
Not to mention there's an option to take off $100 if it's totaling over $1500.
This setup would only cost you just under $1600 without that $100 off.
Malibal for the win!
According to Notebookcheck.net, the 6970M pushes an 11k GPU score in vantage, 21k in CFX whereas the 560m pushes only 8k alone and 15k in SLI. Free upgrades for the win.
Also, the 6970M is faster than the 570M too by a good margin. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html
The same setup as that Sager above, customized under Malibal comes out to $1500
Just be sure to include the $100 off thingy. Edited by Imglidinhere - 11/21/11 at 10:42am
