17" Laptop Best for The $$$$$

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I need a objective opinion toward 17" Laptops. I love AMD 64: Intel is
too pricey to compete. The Processor heat is not a factor like it use
to be.  ----
comparison is not fair.
Pro-Star make the 3700+ 1680x1050 WSXGA glass view w/ bells for $2100
w/ OS. M-Tech sell the same for $50 less. Pro-Star makes the machine
for Pro-Star.
Is there a 17" Laptop out there with the same or better qualities for
that bang for the buck?
Weight, battery life is not an issue. I want a boy-toy w/ number pad;
big and powerful.
