    Just be sure to get a really good cooling pad as Laptop's are not meant for 100% CPU usage long term by default. The bottom of the laptop will be hot to the touch if hot air is not pushed out properly.

    If the heat is bad, i'll just flip the laptop over, remove the cover, and plop my spare 9700 nt onto the heatpipe (have already done with another laptop)

    I got the model with the i7 620um, 4 GB of memory, everything else is stock (except for the personalization stuff), and I'm adding my own Seagate Momentus XT 500GB Very Happy

    I have the 720QM and with 48 cuda cores I should be able to do some nice folding on that gpu. The thing is this is a laptop for college and I dont know how often I will be running F@H on it.

    I think laptops are useless for folding. I mean everybit counts but I dont think its a great idea.
