I'll be needing a laptop for when I go back to school and get my doctorates soon... and I want to basically get the best possible gaming setup. Price be damned.

I've really narrowed my decision down to one of two laptops:
Voodoo PC's Envy www.voodoopc.com
or
Falcon NorthWest's FragBook 6800 www.falcon-nw.com

It seems that Voodoo has not updated their laptop in a couple of seasons now! This dissapoints me because this is the laptop I would normally choose hands down.

What would your choice be? And if you could include ANY laptop of your choice, what would it be???

The 9800 = old and moldy. Especially in a situation like this where money is no object.

The Radeon Mobility x800 and the GeForce Go 6800 are where it's at now :P

The 9800 actually out-performs the 6800go........

The x800 is supposed to be a big jump. I don't think it is in any laptops just yet though.

they have a new notebook out, Area-51m 7700
It's concidered to be the "mobile" desktop. 2 hard drives, 2 optical drives, 4 USB 2.0, Pentium HT, PCI-E GeForce 6800 Go graphics module. Its the heavy weight. The one i want is 14.5 lbs w/ the battery. But if you're going to have it pluged in all the time, who gives a daym.

Compare the price and hardware of that Alienware to the Sager or the Pro-Star.

Alienware adds an extra $300 for the name alone.
