I suggest going to the Dell.com website and specing out something within your price range to get an idea of what you'd get for $2900.
The Dell XPS models are their high-end models.

There's no such thing as a laptop without compromises. Light, Powerful, Long Runtime. Pick any two.
My $0.02: If you cannot compromise, then you should get two laptops. One for travelling which is very light and maybe has a long runtime, at least long enough for a cross country flight. The other laptop would be more of a desktop workstation replacement. It's gonna have a big screen, dual core CPU, lots of RAM and HDD space, and a kick ass GPU. It's also gonna dislocate your shoulder if actually try to carry one around in an airport for a few hours.
If you're limited to only one laptop, then a good compromise would be the upper level DELL XPS models, like the M1710

I personally have a Dell Inspiron E1705 which is a 17" widescreen. I got it with a Core Duo (Core 2 weren't out yet) and a gig of ram, 100 gig hard drive, and a GeForce Go 7800. I also got the upgraded sound card as well as the extra bright screen and extra long battery. Overall I am absolutely thrilled with the computer and it handles all my 3d AutoCAD with ease as well as any game I throw at it. With your budged you can easily get a great desktop replacement, but remember that the better it is, the heavier it will be (mine is listed at over 8 lbs).I don't like signatures.

If you plan on gamming or autocad
I just bought a Asus G1 for $1800.
Asus has One of the best, if not the best in laptop design and build.
Mine has Core 2 Duo 7200 / nVIDIA 7700 with 512mb built in (non hypermemory junk) / 2 GB of PC2 5300/ 160gb HD/ Wifi with Bluethooth.
15.4" Nice screen one of the nicest ive seen.
It comes with a 8 cell battery which gets me 3 hours on surfing.
There is a link on my signature, give it a look.
If not a G! look at other Asus laptops because there quality is great and a 2 year global warrenty.

My experience is that Sony Vaios have much better screens (and build in general) than their Dell equivalents, although they are more expensive.

Now that some notebook hard drives have perpendicular recording, you can find them of decent size but still much less than a desktop drive. unless you're willing to tote a 3.5" portable drive, that will be a compromise for a good while... And theyare likely to always be slower as they are designed to conserve power.

My top list of laptops are as follows.
1. Asus ( Because of the value, High performance parts, and the warrenty.)
2. Sony ( Slim, light models available, and the screen is nice)
Anything else is tied up.
I think overall that Asus gives you a lot more for what you pay for than Sony.
Notebookreview.com is a very nice site to look and there is a great forum where people post self reviews.
