buying advice ~16" cad and gameing notebook, what else ;)

I'm looking for a new notebook, it's high time, because my old is broken, is just the question which one?
Mainly I'm doing CAD and image processing but from time to time I want to play some games, with demanding 3d graphics.
Sufficient battery lifetime would be bad too but could be kind of a problem with that hardware config...aonther thing are the dimensions, approx. (H x W x D) 38 x 330 x 274 mm, whereas the width can be much more, since it would still in the inside pocket of my bag pack.
I've got some information about what would be suit my demands.
The first two havethe better graphics but not that much up to date like the LG
DevilTech 9000 DTX
LG P510-U.CPCAG Sambuci
furthermore I've found Nexoc, it's like Dell, but it's in German unfortunately, but I can't find any tests but it has blue-ray
Nexoc E709,
or does anyone know some similar ones ?

There are now thousands of 16 inch laptops out there. My list would be that Intel C2D CPU, an Intel 4500MHD or better display and to wait it out for Windows 7.

just curious before i post anything specific, but what exact games/software would you be talking about by demanding 3d grphics? does it really have to be exactly a 16 inch laptop? what about a 15.6 inch display? and what price range are you looking for. and just as a quick suggestion without looking extensively at the ones you have posted as choices, here would be a good system to base your search on: intel core 2 duo T6500 or if you can find a cheap model of P series CPU. 3-4gb of ram, 6 cell minimum battery, intel 5400HD integrated chipset or at least a dedicated geforce 130gt, and i think that basis should help alot. if not ask more questions, we will post answers.

new machine

In reply to: more info please

thx, I'll try my best but soon a new machine from deviltech is coming the fragbook DTX, is quiet expensive but it's maybe the right one, have to wait for the test, maybe there are any other machine like this one around...and there is one more thing the Express Gate from ASUS, what appeals to me, but in the web should be something else as that to find...
