What laptop for gaming

I'm going traveling in a couple of months, and have just relalised this is going to leave me out of playing computer games, like UFO Aftershock (comming out about a week before I leave!) so it got me thinking, if I could get a cool laptop that can handle these games, should the need arise were surfing/sightseeing/drinking doesn't appeal I can turn to a trusty gaming machine. Now where better to learn about the best laptops on the current market then here! So here goes

My requirements
Long battery life - my flight is 24 hours, I'm not in 1st class so no recharge option!
Cheap extra battery costs - same reason as above.
Small - I'm travling so weight and pack space is limited.
Cost - upto 1500GBP (I can get from america before I go if I can get better spec for the money)
I want to play games like UFO/Command & Conquer/Simcity etc
I would like to use it to watch DVD's

any ideas welcome!

  1. It's impossible to have long battery performance and good game performance, because faster cpu and graphic accelerator need more power supply.

    my laptop: IBM T43 1.86ghz/1gb ram/ati x300/6 cells battery
    the battery can only last about 1.5h when I play "World of Warcraft", so if you want to have a 24 hours power supply but no recharge option, one battery is not enough~~get more~~~hehe~~:)
