Advice for Laptop HDV editing set-up

I'm looking at replacing my old desktop HP workstation xw8200 with a laptop running off solar power. Although the Sager/Clevo x7200 appears the best it is possibly too much power for my planned solar system. Only working with HDV & CS3 at moment (PPro, Audition, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator etc) but hope to make CS5 at some future point.

I'm therefore looking at the Clevo P170HM with i7-2920XM, 16GB & GTX 580M. The down side compared to the x7200 is only 2 internal drives. I think you can replace the optical drive with another hard drive.

Anyone have experiences with any of the above?

Would it be better to have the third drive as an internal drive (with an external bluray burner) or have the third drive an external USB 3.0 or eSata?

Cheers

Re: Advice for Laptop HDV editing set-up

Here's the system I'm looking at purchasing for HDV editing:

Clevo P170HM

Intel i7-2920XM Processor, GTX560M, 16GB 1600Mhz DDR3,

HDD1: Crucial M4 128GB SSD, HDD2: Seagate Momentus 750GB 7200RPM HDD, HDD3: Seagate Momentus 750GB 7200RPM HDD,

External Bluray Panasonic UJ-240 (USB 2.0)

Perhaps with G-raid mini 1TB via eSATA.

Comments anyone?
