I was wondering what would the best gaming notebook be right now with a resonable price I really don't want to pay more the 2k on a notebook and would really like to still play games. Is the AMD64 any good as a notebook I know the desktop verson is the best at games but is the notebook AMD64 the same way or does Intel give a better alternitve?

I think I would of gone for Amd 64. But the problem I have is that I need the space. I want to run 2 Hard drives. And a dvdrw/cdrw drive. And I have not seen a Amd 64 Laptop Do this yet.

A64 notebooks will be good gaming rigs, but they are most likley limited by the videocard no matter what CPU you get. I wouldnt spend top dollar on the fastest notebook cpu when it comes with medium performance (by desktop standards) videocards, and they most likely will. Don't be fooled by the names either, but mobile radeons and Geforces run at considerably lower clockspeeds than their desktop counterparts. If you're into mobile gaming, look for the fastest videocard you can find, and see what cpu you can get with it :)  Rather, i'd rethink if I really wanted a laptop for gaming in the first place, and if a SFF PC wouldnt be a better solution.
