Ok, basicly i need a new gaming laptop, but cant decide.

I would like to know the following:
1) Is Crossfire 5870M really much more powerful than a single 5870M?
2) If Alienware is chosen, am I able to upgrade myself through AW? (meaning i can install the parts myself like replace a Graphics card)
3) Quality of the laptops' speakers mentioned above?
4) Will AW send me a second HDD bracket on request?
5) Is Intel Centrino really that much better than Dell's cards or another?

MSI GX740/1727 barebone

It will be this laptop, but with a matte finish, and will have a 740QM

ASUS G73JH

essentially this laptop but only with 4GB ram

Things i could care less about: Battery life, weight and obviously the fact that a desktop is cheaper to build/maintain/upgrade

Games: Fallout 3, GTA IV, COD:MW2, Crysis, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Daed 2. I would like to run these at mid to high graphics, and be able to run most new games when they come out like Fallout New Vegas
