I agree. If your going for portability netbooks are the way to go and then you can save some and buy the desktop so you have both.

You'll find yourself hating a laptop with that power, they are usually too heavy to carry around for every day use.

Get a killer desktop with a GTX 295 or a 4870X2 and a i7/Phenom II, and then pick up a good Core2Duo laptop, with decent graphics, such as a 4650 or 9400M
