I wouldn't recommend buying a powerful laptop, coming from personal experience. I had one, albeit one that I got a couple years ago, and if were to do it again, I wouldn't.

You're better off getting a full fledged desktop with similar specs for cheaper, and geeing a low-power notebook for the road. Heat's a huge issue, the power consumption is really lousy, and in many cases, they stay tethered to a desk defeating the point of portability. Plus, you're limited in terms of upgradability.

Sager makes some quality stuff but a little overkill and heavy and HOT!!! I have a Prescott P4 @ 3.2 ghz sager and some ati card at the time it was awesome but battery topped at like 45 minutes. I would recommend Alienware or dell xps as they look good thinner and backed by dell warranty.

This makes me wonder if I should hold out for a Thinkpad update. I'm looking into getting a laptop soon. My desktop isn't the latest and greatest, but it does exactly what I need and want from it. I have been wanting a notebook for a while, especially for school.
