I know that this question was all ready answered but i figured il throw in my 2 cents. if you have the money for it, this laptop (link on the bottom) is the best, and most amazing laptop for gaming ever. its called the alien ware mx11.

it might be a good product, but I'd never buy another HP/compaq

hardware support, proprietary hardware (depends on model), and in my experience, non-existant technical support.

I agree. Generally brand name computers do't allow overclocking but I'm not sure if you'd want that. I kinda disagree with Frollard in a sense as well because if you build your own computer the tech support is yourself. I'm assuming Frollard meant by from someone else though so this would not be a problem.
