Default Looking For Notebook Help

If this isn't the correct forum please ignore this and point me in the right direction.


I have a friend who is getting a new job that's going to put him on the road 5 months out of the year, and he is looking into getting a laptop, does anyone know where he could by/build a laptop for around 1700 that will play new games, number one game he wants it to play is world of warcraft.

Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe Alienware? There's the Aurora m9700. Starts at $1,800 I think. Has SLi.
