Agreeing w/below, I have a Dell Precision M6500[^] laptop. It's part of a series that is described as a portable desktop - pretty accurate description

Bought refurbished for $400
17" screen, two HDD (can configure to raid 1 if you wish).
A real keyboard (! ! ! ! !) that feels great.
It's heavy and battery life is shortish - but when buying I considered that, for the most part, I and other laptop users keep it plugged in whilst working, anyway.

I did update the boot HDD to SSD. Came with Win7 Pro when I bought it and will stay that way.

Probably newer and faster version available - i7's versions are available.
A have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too solution.
