I am looking at getting a laptop for work and to also to do some gaming.

Are there any able to run Crysis or Assassins Creed and at what price?

I spotted this one on the Dick Smith website that seems to have a good balance of features for an affordable price. Trouble is not stocked locally and they won't ship between stores.

I wouldn't bother with crysis with a 8600M, just use a desktop for gaming and this for work.

it's not that flash, the ASUS is probably around that same price and probably better too.

3.4KG for 1.7" lappy ... not bad at all. The early 17" ones weighed 10KG.

Work is getting me the following;

Dell XPS M1730-

CPU - C2D 2.6GHz
RAM - 4GB DDR2
GPU - 2 x 8800MGTX
Screen - 17in
Phyisics - Ageia Physx

Weighs in at 5kg without the power brick, but as a laptop, it will meet my needs for work.

Insane, that's at least $3799.

Wish my work would buy me one, hell, I'm sure the big boss Michael Dell (I call him Mick) can throw one my way.

Maybe.
