HP ENVY I think is very good for the price (~ $2000), metal finish, you can put an i7 2820 Second Gen. in it and it comes with a 1Gb DDR5 Radeon.

Envy has crap resolution and no upgrade to HD for UK customers. That was what it was when I looked last year anyway so I got a top spec VIAO

I dunno...either buy a super-duper laptop with mega specs for a shitload of money, which is then loud and warm and heavy, or just get a decent 600$ gaming laptop and be comfortable with the fact that a notebok will never ever be the same as a workstation. just my opinion

never get low & slow & out of ideas

well trains have wifi (at least around here) so i guess you can do the rendering on your home machine when on the go! i suggest prioritizing the gpu above other components

i have a dell and it works pretty good. You can get an alien ware for about that price. i just spec'd one out and with all of the options it was 1000. Just my opinion.
