Laptop searching

Does anybody know a great place where I can get a durable and powerful laptop? I'll need it for my upcoming deployment. I prefer not to really go over $4,000 if possible (Tax not included). Thanks in advance

Yes by Deployment, I mean Afghanistan. I need something powerful and able to withstand multiple falls if it happens. I'll take a look at those links, thanks

Re: Laptop searching

@gensym - If you cannot find a preconfigured gaming/engineering/pro CAD laptop for $4000, you can at least customize it to be over $4,000. One might question the use of having all that power in mobile (though heavy) device, but there are people who need such machines. The aforementioned Toughbooks also can be pricey.

Re: Laptop searching

Well I just want something to last the months out on Afghanistan and I'd like to be able to finish my game backlog when I have downtime. At least some. Thanks for the link though. I'm still searching unfortunately

Re: Laptop searching

Does that mean you did not like the Toughbooks, or did you not check it out yet?

Re: Laptop searching

Oh I checked them out definitely. I'm not purchasing right away, so I'm keeping all options available. I'll be getting it around July/August at the latest, so I'm just comparing any I find suitable to each other
