  1. I know Eurocom has a 480m SLI laptop, which is the most powerful.
    The only crossfiref mobility 5870 laptop I know of is the Alienware (ugh) M17x, but it's a total ripoff as with all alienware computers.
    EDIT: Eurocom has 5870 cf too.

    None of those seem to have a better card than the GTX 460m which has GDDR5

    The 480m is significantly more powerful than the 460m, and sli means two of them, so yes, it is much, much more powerful. The ram type is not the most important part; The number of processing cores(cuda/simd cores) and clock speed is.

    Ahh, I see, unfortunately, It looks like that is going to throw my laptop out of my price range :(

    You did ask for the best performance excluding other factors...

    if you actually tell us what you are after, we can tell you what is best.

    I just wanted to know, to make sure I was getting the best card in for my range.

    I need a laptop for under $1800. So far I have found three that I can work with that include the nVidia GTX 460M

    Here's what I have found:

    Sager NP 8690

    Asus G53JW-A1

    Asus G73JW-A1

    Nah, to get the Origin the way I want it, it gets put way out of my price range.


    The Asus and Sager, top the Origin and the Battalion. Hands down it seem, and at about $200-300 cheaper.
