I have been looking around the internet trying to find the fastest graphics laptops within our budget and we need serious graphics power, so the question of the hour is:

Bottom line which has more graphics clout the-
Dell XPS 1710 Intel dual core 7600 single 7950gtx OR Alienware m9700 Amd turion 2.4 dual 7900gs


(We are actually a science research laboratory and need portable graphics workstations for displaying openGL models of cancer tumours and hearts).

Any help would be much appreciated.

I wouldn't get that system from a distributor using stock cooling brah...

VERY bad idea.
The ODM wassn't even sure the 7950 GTX would work in it because they had heat issues.

Take a look at Dell's site, look for mobile workstations, Precision M65 or M90 (I'm also considering buying one, I work with 3d modeling programs). And if you need to display 3d models a quadro 2500 is actually the top choice for price/performance (the 3500 is slightly better in numbers and very expensive). A fast hard drive is also a key component on laptops. Good luck! :wink:

Hey, that's what student loans are for!
I just got the PS3, and now I need a big 1080p HDTV to "experience it all" 8O

Thing is SWEET though, I have to hand it to them, and it does a lot of cool stuff that no one is really talking too much about. Media center type stuff.
