That is about the only laptop I have seen w/ a built in tv tuner so I guess if you need that go for it.
That thing is going to be hot and huge. Does that thing even have a battery? I don't see how any laptop battery could survive the draw that machine must have. If it does have one I doubt it will last more than 20-30min at most. You will definatly need to run that thing on ac all the time and hope it doesn't melt, lol.

There are usb tv tuners and such avaliable so you could put tv on any laptop. Putting a prescott proc in a laptop just sounds stupid to me. Those things suck so much power and generate so much heat it just makes no sense.
Get a Dell XPS or something, that is pretty big, powerful, and expensive. You will be faced with about the same battery performance (maybe 40min or so) but at least you will have less of a chance of it melting, lol.
