    You can buy gaming laptops but they are never going to be as good as there desktop counterparts. Ive never actually tried building one myself but have been told that it is more difficult than doing a desktop. Id personally recommend buying one ready built but then thats just my stance.

    Laptops cant become actual gaming computers because they dont have the same stuff as desktops do, like nVidia 8800s and SLi-configs ( I dont know if laptops have SLI / crossfire )

    Hey, if you want to spend that much money on a computer check this website out


    www.voodoopc.com

    That's where the most ember-of-ember PCs come from, It's all watercooled ( no fans except for a vent ) and it has SLI-8800s which are Cooled with water as well and it comes with a really cool case that is highly decorated with awesome designs but the PCs are like $4,000 and laptops are like $4,500

    It also comes with it's 28" LCD monitor ;)

    I wish I was you so I can build a SLi 8800 1000w Desktop and buy all the games I ever wanted :)
