Re: This must be a question with hardly anyone having the same needs

I tried this question over on a laptop forum and got zip as well from anyone who had gone through buying a powerful computer with basically the same needs as me.

Most reviews have been "well, if you need a laptop this powerful it's going to wind up being your desktop computer anyway so just get a desktop". Like carrying a 7 pound laptop is some big workout or something. Oh well...

Actually, I think quite a few users have needs similar to yours, but the common thinner-and-lighter trend has kept many from understanding the tradeoffs involved. I've seen a lot of complaints from buyers of high-spec laptops that aren't getting the performance they expected.
