I'd have to say alienware has the best gaming laptops, even though I hate alienware.

-AMD 64 3000 Winnie
-eVga 6600GT (PCIe)
-Mushkin Dual Pack PC3200 (512 X2)

Their's much better gaming laptops than alienware.

However, gaming laptop's and battery efficent laptops are at the exact opposite sides of laptops.

You cannot get a battery efficent gaming laptop.

I dunno if they are Alienware or not, but you can find some pretty bad laptops in PC Gaming magazine for less than $1k.

I have an IBM r40a that runs very well for the most part. Their new IBM R51 is pretty cool too. They get about 2 hours battery and ane not too bad graphics wise. Ati Mobility 7500 does well enough in most games. Can't get it to run much high than 1024x768 without loosing some serious performance...

good luck...
