Good luck getting a laptop that will handle games like Crysis with any sort of decent graphics under a bamillion dollars or that has longer than a one hour battery life.

The 8800 GTX (an 8 series Nvidia is recommended for Crysis according to some websites) draws something close to 30 amps. No laptop battery is going to put that out. Laptop VGA's are significantly optimized (and usually compromised from a performance standpoint) to deliver acceptable battery life under gaming load. If I'm up to snuff on my VGA performance info, they generally perform significantly poorer than desktops in respect to gaming.
