Default New lappy im about to buy.

Asus - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology - White/Black - G51VX-RX05

This thing is a beast and can hold its own against desktops.

Gaming laptops are not known for their battery life. It's the reason why I have a large enough backpack to carry both Laptop and netbook with me.
