It looks apparent that the guy doesnt want a desktop, so stop telling him to get one.

All in all the Alienware m9700 is the best gaming laptop you can get. It has SLI, the option of RAID, and many other things you often wont find on some desktops. Yes it does not have a BLU-Ray Drive but whens the last time you were gaming and thought, WOW! I wish I had a BLU-Ray drive instead of 2 gigs of RAM. The Sony PSP suggested is not a gaming laptop. It is a s**t picker upper laptop.

So adroc use this link for the best gaming laptop out there
http://alienware.com/Configurator_P...ode=SKU-DEFAULT
and I hope you take our expert advice and get the M9700
dibs on it if you die

IT works yes, but not the best. Also, why recomend a desktop when he SPECIFICALY asked for a GAMING LAPTOP.
lol,k...

but anyways, if you want a good laptop get this
http://www.dell.com/content/products...n=specs#tabtop
AND DONT SA ITS NOT GOOD....
it has a x1800 (dont know why they make a weird series just for laptops.... jsut make it X1900GO lol)
up to four gigs

Default why a laptop

first thanks for all the posts. i didnt expect that many. and the reason i want a laptop is because i am always gone and really never home. right now i am in canada and next month i will be in Arizona. I always have a super fast connection but need a laptop to keep me happy while i am out there.

what about widow, northwest, and voodoo?

thanks again
