You can't even build a desktop to play games 7-10 years from now. Well.. you probably can if you set the graphics to the lowest possible settings and reduce the resolution.

The Radeon 9800 Pro came out in 2003. Try finding a current game that lists it as a minimum requirement. Many games will probably list the Radeon X1800 or X1900XT (which were released in 2005 and 2006) was the minimum requirement.

Assuming you want to max out graphics and play games with pretty high requirements like Metro 2033, then you may be able to get a laptop now with the absolute best specs to last maybe 3 years. Maybe...

When I say best games for the next 5-10 years, I'm speaking of PC built games like WoW. Not COD and things like that. Could you please disregard the games part and help me find the best laptop to date with the absolute best everything?

the razer blade is the most fancy thing you can buy.

if you want a powerful one then there is people who put desktop parts inside laptops.

Otherwise simply go to Falcon NorthWest site and start configuring a DRX gaming laptop. Base configuration is $3,241 and can easily go over $5,000.

If price is seriously isn't an issue, just go here http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-m18x/pd.aspx, select all upgrade options and be done with it. For the upgrades I chose for this hypothetical system, it came to $5,878.99.

Sorry dude, got you beat.

A Falcon Northwest DRX maxed out with all the options, except MS Office 2010, works out to $8,331.

Honestly, I didn't max it out, I just chose things that I personally would choose if I was in that situation, but even if I HAD maxed it out, I'm pretty sure it's wouldn't have been that much. That's eye opening :ouch:

absolutely pointless ask. its pure fantasy that a laptop will last 5 never mind 10 years.
reason?. within 6 months you will have heat issues. most people with laptops are careless about where they use em and often fall asleep with em in the bedroom. which is the dustiest room in the house... so will quickly fill up the vents and fans...
after 2 years you will need new gfx as lappy gfx are on average half or more less powerful than there desktop counterparts... a 560m for instance will barely match a 98gt but a 560gtx will trade blows with a 6870 which is more than x2 the power for very much the same money...
the 560m is considered high end for laptop gaming but as i said it hardly beats a 98gt which is already minimum spec for a lot of todays games.

so no m8 you will be lucky to find a gaming laptop that lasts 3 years never mind 5-10

Dell Alienware M18x - 3.70GHz i7-2960XM costs 3.8k for that i could have a i7 2011 with 2 gtx 680's a huge 500gig ssd and about 6tb of storage... if i went for a desktop...
seriously 4k will get you a serious desktop that will give 4 or more times the gfx grunt of the 580m
