Default Gaming / Desktop Replacement Lap Top/ Note Book!

Does any one know a great desktop replacement notebook. I want to mostly watch movies, listen to songs, burn dvd's. I want lots of storage and maybe even play some games.

I want something thats top of the line. I can spend about 2500 - 3000 Dollars. I want something with a decent size screen too.

Let me know if you know one! Thanks!

Have you checked out the Asus ones?
They have the G1 and G2, which are designed specifically for what you are looking for.
I got the Asus S96J in my sig for about $1050, and it can do everything you specified you want. Obviously it's not a top of the line model and I have a desktop to fill those needs, but they do make models that cater to that crowd as well.

Yeah if you don't quite want to drop the money on Alienware Asus and MSI make great gaming notebooks too. I've got an MSI MS-1039, very satisfied with it. Newegg carries them, www.abs.com also sells them too.
