that should be pretty good for you if you are willing to spend 3200 or so. It would definately be good for a while. if you wanted to later upgrade ram it's only like $100 cuz it's got 1 open spot.

and it's got that nice 19" display you talked about
well that dell i suggested has a 20.1 inch widescreen... AND.. its probably the coolest look laptop... EVER

though that does offer sli... in a laptop!!... looks or graphics.. hahaha

Yeah, I went on those sites....but I live in the UK, and I don't think either of them ship here. The prices are so much better than things here though...

As for the DELL, I saw that too and thought it was really great...but I was concerned with the graphics card... I'd been looking at high end nvdias with 512MB and even SLI and I thought (maybe wrongly) that the 256MB ATI® Mobility® Radeon® X1800 would be considerably worse.

Well, from what I can tell it's a notch down from the nvdias on the other systems, not that's neccessarily a problem. I just need the system to "last" enough to make it worth spending the money...

HAHAHA battery on a 19" with SLi would last about 30 minutes, good luck on the mobility thing, not to mention it would weigh about 20 pounds.
