why not a pc? i mean in like 1 year new things will come out and you're stuck with the same *** where pc, you can always change new graphic cards at least and have huge screen and ect for less the price. then you gona say, no space?

17" laptop will weight just the same as a pc tower, 17" laptop will need a desk anyway it will burn your legs and its not safe to do so..realy get an alienware liquid cooled pc, a high end gaming laptop will just die man.

My physical and skeletal systems no longer allow me to sit long periods of time at a PC and my carpal tunnel surgeries are failing--not uncommon.

My 14.1 in HP Pavilion dv22425nR notebook sits on a night-stand-like piece of furniture about 12"x14" with enclosed storage and a open shelf.

The HP notebook is attached to a Targus dual fan cooler sitting a light metal notebook holder at a slight slant. I feel NO HEAT

Thw entire setup easily slides onto my lap after the electric lift chair is proper elevgted to the proper height. I have never dropped it.

This HP notebook is in a number of series that have had multiple CPU/GPU failures do to improper soldering and maybe other problems.

Despite have an AMD processor it had a NVidia GMU not ATI.

I could do with a 16-17 ince screen, except HP did not offer a CoreDUO Quad processor in anything I found on-line except the HDX 18.4.

I would like a 1g GPU and 3-4 DDR 3 GPU. Even my present on drags on some streaming video and You TUBE stuff. the DVD CD does ok.

The overheating NVidia cards was a series related issue and hasn't occured like it did a couple of years ago. In other words, it seems NVidia fixed the problem.

If you want to go with ATI, I would say look at the MSI GT729. There aren't many high-end gaming laptops that use ATI GPUs. The majority use NVidia.

If you are willing to go back to NVidia, then this would be about the best option available for your budget: http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8760-built-clevo-w870cu-...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I honestly think I could do with a a very high end entertainment PC just short of a gaming machine. I just want streaming and highend video flowing smoothly. I realize my DSL which is 50o/125 is some of the problem and which I have hopes 0f improvement as viberoptics which is being installed in my area and why I picked HP HDX. If they had the core duo quad in smaller sscreen i would probably step down size. I can't find many brands with CORE DUO Quads. Are the othrt notebook processors equivalent-

Not sure I fully understand that, but I will give this a try.

1) A desktop would certainly be cheaper than a high-end laptop. You can get better hardware for less in most cases.
2) If you are asking about the 2 laptops I mention above, the MSI uses Core2 Duos and can't be equiped with a Quad. At least not that I've seen. The Sager from the link I posted uses Core i7 processors which are Intel's newest Quad Cores.

Did I get that right?
