Hello
1_Yes but the difference is quite noticeable,the i7 desktop models have faster clock and consume more power,so overall they have better performance
2_Few models(such as some Alienware/Clevo models) allow users to upgrade the VGA
3_The best laptop(in terms of performance)is currently AW M17x which has 2 5870Ms(performs a little worse than 2 5770 desktop in CrossFire),so its a good performer but with the same price you can get a much more powerful desktop.

Then if you want to run avp,crysis, rs5,bc2,consider a notebook with 2 VGAs like AW M17x(don't expect great battery life from it though)

Your probably gonna spend over $2000 and still have a weaker set up than your desktop, but it's your money if your gonna try to max games out. Your laptop will also run so hot it needs to sit on a desk, and have such short battery life it needs to be plugged in all the time.
