You left out some important things...
Use tier 1 distributer boxes, then tell who uses those rebadged. Example: Clevo m570u; used by alienware, voodoo, hypersonic, sager, xotic pc, killernotebooks, etc.
Second; for a gaming rig, upgradable gpu is important. Several won't allow it, while others use proprietary MXM standards (like dell gpu's while upgradable, can't be used in a alienware rig, etc.)
Third; mention chipsets utilized... centrino pro, etc..
Fourth; you need to give some mention about warranties.. they greatly differ per manufacturer; like Asus is non-existant, whereas you can get a variety of options on Dells, etc.
Fifth.. some rigs are weird; like Sony uses both onboard and a gpu board (for better power features)
Sixth.. laptop doesn't mean it sits on your lap. I've yet to use mine that way.. it always has a table, and I'd bet the vast majority of folks here seldom actually try to use a laptop balanced on their lap. Heat isn't about frying your shorthairs, it's about burning out components inside the box....

Price... umm that moves around.. a lot. It also doesn't mean diddly squat other than set a range. You seem to emphasize it. Great for folks that look for cheap... but cheap doesn't mean good.

You seem to be biased against gaming rigs... battery life, weight, 17" screen.. hmmmm... mine weighs 6 lbs, has a 17" monitor, and I can get 2 hours on the battery if I can live with power features (they'll half clock me on battery by going to a 6x multiplier vs 12x on plug). You might also check my superpi scores and 3dmark scores I've posted... I'm outrunning several desktops around here....

Last, really bad timing.... Half the new Santa Rosa rigs haven't hit the street yet and some folks keep changing exactly what the specs are...
You'd be better off talking about technologies and what the different kinds of rigs are: gaming, portable, media player, business class, etc.

Weird i know people with large fast laptops. They dont burn my lap but keep it nice and warm.
Also it seems most large laptops have bad battery life. my dads 15inch had like 1hr but his new tablet pc gets like 3hrs+

Also your lucky.. 6lbs? Where. the HP With a go 7600 said on hps website 9.7lbs... a Small Laptop like 12-13 inches are generally around 5-6lbs
