Pent 4 and laptops don't mix. A lot of heat and absolutely no battery life. I had a Dell XPS Gen 1 (P4) with 2 batteries and would go through both in one hour of playing during my work breaks.
I now have a Dell XPS Gen 2 and still go through it's 1 battery in 1 hour of heavy gaming. But it is sooo much lighter, bigger, faster.
I haven't found anything that even comes close to the XPS Gen 2. It is so good that I'm getting rid of my desktop PC and desk. No need for them any more with wireless networks, etc.
Then _only_ thing I would change on the Gen 2 is the mouse buttons, which are loud.
And no I'm not in the PC industry.
So does anyone have any suggestion on what and where to get a decent Gaming Laptop?
So far I have a couple I have my eye on:
