Buying a midrange gaming laptop

Hi,

I am planning to buy a new laptop for doing my coding and development stuffs and also playing high-end games like GTA 4 .I am looking for a midrange laptop with a good graphics card, with good build quality and with efficient heat emissions.

The processor of choice is any quad cores starting from i7 740QM (Sandy Bridge if available)
Brands : Dell , Lenovo or HP (Please give the pros and cons of each brand)
Battery Life: 3+ hours

Note:I am now in the U.A.E and models available here is limited.

Thanks

    What models are available?
    It does you no good for us to suggest something that isn't available.

    For GTA IV on medium graphics settings you probably want a GT 425M or better video card.
