Things are getting smaller and smaller, next thing we will see is a 9800M GX2 or something like that.

If money weren't a big issue, I'd look at Killernotebooks. So far, they are the only gaming notebook retailer I know of that modifies them like a custom builder. By modding, I'm talking cnc machined custom heatsinks and other various cooling mods like a custom bios (the base rig is a clevo). They come overclocked, and under warranty. The newest feature is a overclocking toggle button. You can even get ES cpu's. You can do custom graphics if you are into that sort of thing too. Website sucks, so contact them directly.

Like I said though, they are not inexpensive. You'll pay a lot more than you'd do for similar specs elsewhere...

As for warranty concerns and system failures.... mine's nearly two years old. It's been overclocked most of it's life. It's used at the office, then again at home for gaming. I've yet to have a single issue. Mark at Killernotebooks has twice called me.. first time was to offer me a 7950GTX upgrade from my 7900GT for $40. Second time was to tell me he had some spare modded bottom plates laying around and to see if I wanted one (he shipped it for no charge).. As for speed, my two year old rig still pushes out 5600+ 3dMark06 figures and keeps very cool doing it. I would definately use them again.

AMEN! KN notebooks are kickass!! I used to talk to the owner Mark alot! and he is one awesome dude, very detailed and very specific! You won't go wrong with his notebooks. If I'm getting a notebook, WILL definitely would look at his stuff!

Just my 2cents on KN notebooks.

These are the main companies that I know of that will make you something close to gaming. Still it's a HUGE downgrade from even a single 8800.

I found my Gateway FX quite capable of running anything I throw at it. It even runs MS Flight Sim pretty good. I'ved been thinking of relegating my Desktop to the shop and the Lappie would certainly keep me entertained in the home or in the hotel....

I'd get a laptop from alien ware because alien war is mainly for games.

XPS M1530 PRODUCT(RED) (the red one comes with ultimate instead of premium for the same price, and helps fight aids!) it starts at 1K with a measly 8400, but $100 will get you a 8600, so for 1,100 you have a core 2 duo laptop with vista ultimate, NVIDIA 8600 (will PLAY all your games, i had one, maxed everything @ low rez besides Crysis) 2GB RAM ($50 more will get you 3GB, but buy it yourself and save some $$) and a 15.4" Screen

find some coupon codes on the web

EDIT: @ 3xile: im pretty sure falcon sure exists.
