most notebooks have graphics accellerators with sub-par 3D capabilities. Unless you get something with a chip like the GeForce2GO, but be prepared to pay plenty for a setup like that.

For the cost of a quality "up there" notebook, you could probably build a competent desktop machine with similar capabilities, WITH upgrade potential later on, AND buy a used lower-end notebook. Just a thought...but balance your priorities, do you want/need all your eggs in one basket, or are you in a position where you could divide up the risk?

Notebooks are expensive, they're higher-theft items, and they are a pain to repair or replace if something dies and the unit is not in warranty. Speaking from experience on that last one

I mean, I don't want to discourage you, if what you really want and need is a middle-high-end notebook, then get one. But consider all angles, first.
