I have a custom built desktop a home. However i don't want to lug my hefty machine to college with me so i decided to look at a desktop replacement Laptop.

I'm on a budget but i want a good gaming laptop so i looked at the Asus G1

it scored 7,704 on 3Dmark03 with a 2.2ghz dual-core cpu

my current comp scored 13,202 on 3Dmark03

It seems like a huge difference to me but i dont really know that much about the difference b/w performance of desktop vs. laptop in 3Dmark03 scores

I want a notebook that can handle the games i play on my current comp but 30-40lbs less in weight and i dont really care about short battery life, plus the notion of playing Dx10 games is another plus.

So my question is... is the Asus G1 a good buy in comparison???

It is a pretty good top. The 8600 is not the best DirectX 10 card but I think it is the best card that you can get in a laptop, but I am not positive. The laptop will probably struggle a bit with some DirectX 10 games and Crysis will probably be impossible to play, but with most other DirectX 9 games you will be fine.

The 8700GT is the best you can get for a laptop.
This laptop will meet the minimum requirements for Crysis, it's a very good laptop, though laptops will never replace desktops.
Just a word of warning, your likely to only get around 30minutes of battery life.

Recommended, but not minimum. :) With settings cracked down, it should run it fine.
