Default Fastest laptop?

What is the fastest gaming laptop that I can buy now that is reliable. A laptop that would be able to play crysis and Microsoft flight simulator X at full settings?

Are you kidding me? Nothing can run crysis max, and flight simulator is pretty graphics intensive as well.

Quoted for truth today, and for a good laugh 5 years from now.

Desktop cards can hardly keep up with crysis let alone a laptop. The alienware lappy is as close as you might come. Personally I don't like laptops for hardcore games. Unless you have it hooked up to an external keyboard and mouse it's rather hard to control everything.

the new Alienware M15x and M17x that will have an 8800 GTX SLI, the M15x is available for now but pretty sure Alienware will release the rest by next week or so.

Compare all Alienware Area-51 m15x high performance gaming notebook computers

Max it out and the grand total not including tax and shipping is........................

....































..











$5,463.00 as low as $164/mo.*


Ouch. Thats more than I would pay for any laptop. I don't care how fast it is. In fact I think any pc over $3K is a rip off. Anything that expensive should be a server or some kind of specialized CAD station. But not a consumer level pc.


NOte. I didn't even get into accessories or warranty. Thats just picking the parts.
