    I'm in the search of a new laptop. I have been sporting a 2.1 Sempron, 3GB DDR2, 160GB HDD, Vista Basic, 15.6" for over 2 years now. I am tired of it.

    What I am looking for is a super gaming laptop with a

    Sandy Bridge i7 Quad 2.0ghz+,
    8+GB DDR3 (but capable of 16+),
    7 Home Premium (or better),
    17+inch screen,
    NVidia 3DVision (built-in to the screen),
    3-year on-site accidental warranty,
    some sort of theft protection,
    9- or 12-celll battery,
    4 USB3 ports (a couple USB3 ones would be nice),
    Blu-Ray Writer,
    VGA Adapter,
    DUAL 750GB or 1TB HDDs (RAID1 capability preferred, but I can use Mirror if needed...)

    I am looking for something under $2500... I have one customized from Dell (an XPS 17), but I want to know if anyone knows of any cheaper...

    "meets all of your spec's "
    The Clevo only has an 8-celled battery. He wants 9+.

    If I can get 3-5 hrs of idling with it, it is acceptable.

    @murkurie On the Xotic site, there is no 3d option. There is also not an on-site warranty.

    Forgot to mention that I am in the USA....

    I have the exact same laptop linked to and highly recommend it. Its gaming performance is simply amasing and it runs cool. I am not sure about battery time but I frequently watch movies on battery that are over 1 hr and 30 minutes in length. After watching a 45 minute movie series on battery, I have about 65% left. Go here if you want more information.

    Is there 3D? Where can I buy the 3D version?

    As far as I remember, there is a 3D version that uses the GTX580M and a 120Hz screen. If you ask or search in that link I gave you, they will know everything. Bare in mind that 3D will most likely have a huge impact on gaming performance.
