Needed some help finding a good laptop or laptop build. I listed some requirements below. Please feel free to add in with specific laptops, components, ideas, and/or flame.

lots of floating point operations (computational physics stuff)
parallel seems to do better on my machine
handle bursts of heavy computations ASAP.
interact decently with the HDD/SSD/non-volatile
fast and reliable
money matters after performance

oh and it needs to be very durable

Let me know if you'd like any other information.

Thanks!

Does the software you use support GPU acceleration of floating point calculations?

Budget?

Well you need a quad core CPU to begin with; preferably a quad core i7 CPU which has Hyper Threading.

Do the softwares you use support GPU floating point calculations? Do you need double precision floating point calculation which requires a workstation class GPU? Or is normal "single precision" floating point calculations good enough which any gaming GPU can handle?
