I bought a G51VX-X3A about a year ago from Newegg. P8700 @ 2.53ghz, GTX 260, 4gb ram, 2 hard drive bays you can run in raid0 and 1920x1080 screen. I'm very happy with it and it has never overheated. I think I paid $1100 for it. I don't think it's a bad price. Lower $ is always better.
I haven't been up to date on the new gaming laptops but mine was a lot of laptop for the money. I have 2 320gb WD Blacks in raid 0 and xp installed currently. If you want any benchmarks I can run them for you and answer any questions. I may upgrade to an ssd and terrabyte drive soon and a quad later.
