Default P 6860 FX good for Crysis?

I'm not very good with all the technical talk when it comes to computers. But I'm looking for a new one.

I want a laptop... but I also want to play Age of Conan and Crysis.

I've read that the P 6860 FX is the best gaming laptop for it's price. And that it can play Crysis on Very High settings. Is this true?

no. there's no way that it can play crysis on very high. I could believe mid on most settings at playable rates, but not very high.

So we can help you pick out a good laptop what is going to be the primary use of this, as in are you going to use it as a desktop replacement, or are you gonna be carrying it around with you.

well, it's not necessarily to replace my desktop... my desktop computer crapped out a few weeks ago... but it was an eMachine.
i'll be using it for those two games i mentioned and just basic web-surfing. (i already have wi-fi running in my house because i play on xbox live upstairs in my bedroom).
i'll probably be taking it to friends' houses pretty often. and possibly on a trip to visit my sister in a week (if it get it by then).

how much is it? cause thats actually a pretty good setup depending on the price, and could probably play crysis and AOC on decent settings with no fps lag.

$1350

i did a youtube search for "p 6860 fx" and there was this guy who owned it and had some vids of it on high. and i read somewhere (i think in a comment or in another vid or something) that it also worked fairly well on very high.
