Your probably looking towards a laptop, but my friend got a similar case to yours (in black, maybe the version down?)

But anyway its a pretty good mobile/lan pc. If you can bring a monitor and cables its great, but if you looking for something more portable then you probably want a laptop.

There are several gaming laptops available on eBay. Here are some Dell XPS and Alienware laptops I found in my search, many new. Looks like the prices are under 3K as well. Hope it helps.

No, I install commercial swimming pools and spas, but we have some semi's that we drive to jobs.

EDIT: Looks like I'll start looking at laptops. I was really hoping for a desktop because it's cheaper for one, and a lot easier to upgrade in the future. Granted, I still want to build a new desktop for at home, possibly with watercooling and some other mods. Thanks for all the help so far guys. Will definitely check out the links that you showed me.

Those laptops would probably be your best bet. I have not heard the best things about Gateway laptops.

Dell laptops FTW.

I have an HP laptop right now and I like it, but I haven't heard anything bad about Dell laptops. I'll definitely check out Dell and Alienware, since HP doesn't really have much for me. Thanks for the help guys.

Dell is the most customizable out of laptops I think
