What is your budget.

You will find no better notebook than a Thinkpad. June 5th, Lenovo will be launching the T61p. It will have a nice beefy 512MB Nvidia Quadro videocard. It will be a highend DX10 card that will probably compare to a 7900GTX Go (but DX10).

That is what I recommend. You just can't build the quality, support, and durability of a Thinkpad.

Compared to a Thinkpad, that doesn't come close to being a real laptop.

Not out yet. But going by the cost of the T60p, it can be had for around $2000.
