I got a position working on a mod for Half-Life and now I need a portable workspace that can run Hammer, 3ds Max and HL2:EP2 smoothly. Problem is I know next to nothing about good laptops. So I was wondering if anyone here could recommend something. I'm willing to spend enough money, but I don't want to pay for a logo. (aka AlienWare & Falcon Northwest). I know these higher end laptops are battery suckers, but I don't plan on using it away from an outlet to often. So if anyone has any experience with laptops please post up some recommendations. Thanks in advance for any replies.
