A quad core in a laptop? I hope you keep it in the fireplace. If you want high-quality settings in games, there is much more to be considered than the processor. The GPU in that one probably wouldn't even run Half-life 2.
This would be a good one, if it's not out of your budget.

Update: I did find a mobile quad-core processor, but it's rather slow and is not compatible with that model.

There are a number of notebooks offering quad core processors, RainbowSix, and I'm talking stock systems, not custom built.

Heat dissipation is an issue with most notebooks, and particularly becomes problematic if one wants to upgrade a CPU in one, so sethmoore's question may be more than just "can it fit" but also "will it cause problems". In a PM, I've directed him to another resource that should provide him with the answers he needs.

If one hasn't been released yet, we'll be seeing Core i7 mobile processor based notebooks real soon. They should be "hot" in more ways than one.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
