Don't expect to find a gaming laptop to last "atleast" 3-5hrs.
Anyway,laptops like MSI GT683R/ASUS G53SW are 2 great choices.Their battery life is around 2-4hrs

Both the above models cost a bomb over here like 2000 - 2200 US$, the Asus one is officially unavailable. Luckily I got a friend of mine coming down from US next week so I'm gonna pick up Asus G53SW-A1, thanks a lot guys :) 

Cheers

M14x is also great(It's got a slower GPU than G53 though,but it's much more portable)

The M11x is even more portable but you lose the good graphics card for a slower one and would play most of those game at medium graphics, but you could still play Portal and Cod at high.

Just got my G53SW-A1 within a week from US :D  , got a quick question regarding the laptop's charger. The power supply brick reads:
Input: 100 - 240 V ~ 2.0A
Output: 19.5V

Also, there is a small sticker near the cable end which goes to the socket, which reads "10A, 125V"

I'm in India, will there will an issue if I plug this in directly with the help for a travel adapter, so as to make it fit into the socket ? The power here is 220V / 240V. Or do I need to purchase any additional stuff ? Sorry, a bit clueless regarding this n thanks again.
