Alienware's 17-inch portable beast got a refresh and an update this year in the form of Intel's latest Core i7 offerings and multiple graphic card and hard drive configurations. Depending on how much coin you want to drop you could trick one out to power through absolutely anything: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M graphics, 1TB RAID hard drive configuration, and 8 GB of RAM. With that much power you won't mind lugging around a nine-pound machine.
