I don't know about the dual 7950.. But that dell is the only one I know of where you can get the T7600G unlocked cpu and a bios that allows overclocking. Kudo's to dell for recognizing overclocking a notebook.

BTW: Alienware = Dell; VoodooPC = HP... WidowPC seems to be the only truely independant out there.

I'd actually recommend a WidowPC. I've played on one of those things at a friends place and those things smoke!

I must warn you about overclocking laptops....don't they get to hot to quick, if anything you can maybe get 50mhz out of them.

Also, why not dell? They make excellent laptops, here is a nice one here. YOu can put in the best mobile c2d and it has 2g of ram and you can get a 7900gt. It is a very nice laptop

ok, for 3500, get a lot so...

from looking at cyberpower and alienware, you should try a Dell XPS..

Cyber power, for their C2D the highest was a 7600, or X1800.
their AMD systems had 7900s, but they didnt have any dualcores..

Alienwares didnt have any dual cores with their SLi system i customized.

look at dell's XPS notebook, i know it has C2D and a 7900, and they dont cost a TON...

Good Luck

Are you looking for a true laptop (ie 4-7 lbs, use it off AC power often) or a mobile desktop replacement (7+lbs, on AC power most of the time)? That can make a difference on what you can get. Depends on how you plan to use it though.

Actually, that's a great question. You mentioned it's a college computer. Mine's quick as hell, but it's a porky 9+ lbs and will chew through it's battery in about an hour and a half max; Thus it's a desktop replacement that I move around occassionally and always plug in. It's a good desktop replacement / gaming rig. It's massive overkill for report writing and lugging around a campus having to ever rely on battery power.

Dump half your budget into fixing/upgrading your desktop, and the other half at a pretty good portable notebook.

yea i was looking at the gaming laptops, and i was thinking about how large they were, i would like something that is a real laptop, thanks for asking that question.

i basically decided that i am going to get the core 2 duo, and i like the dell i was linked to because it looks like a laptop, not a toy or something with the flashy lights and all the bells and whistles. how will the single 7600 gs be tho, will it be able to play games at a good speed?

thanks for all of the replies!

oh btw, the reason i am willing to spend so much on a laptop is because i expect it to last multiple years, and at the rate that technology is growing, it is worth it to spend more now and keep the computer for more time.

also, i would prefer to jsut have one computer, it simplifies things. someone needs to come out with an awesome laptop thats portable already lol.

so I decided that im gonna get my college laptop now. i need a computer, so no, i will not be waiting for dx10 or anything, i just need to know, what do you guys think the best gaming laptops are for around $3500.

now before everyone goes ooh dell xps! alienware blahblahblah..., i was wondering if ther was a laptop with comperable performane, but without all of those flash bright lights on hte back of the screen and everything, you know, relatively normal looking.

my last question is, if core 2 duo is so much better than amd turion, why does the alienware gaming laptop only feature turion solutions? which one is better?

thanks a lot.
Ahh, try ABS mayhem

thanks, but i would like to stay with the major brand, i was already screwed over by monarch so i would like to stay with dell gateway alienware u know stuff that people have heard of.

i have a question though, it seems as if an xps equipped with the same specs as an inspiron costs about $1000 more, why is that? i mean, the xps has a slightly better graphics card, but its not a 1000 dollar difference.

thanks

Also, in the spirit of our DIY site, have you considered getting a barebones laptop like an MSI or Asus and getting some of the components yourself? I think barebone notebooks with the 945GM or 945PM chipset can accept Core 2 Duos, so if you find one with a dedicated card that might be the way to go. Not necessarily cheaper, but you can get exactly what you want.
