77W sounds like alot to me for a system like that.

I had this E4500, G33, HD3870, Samsung 3,5" that drew 67W idle.
My E4500 was undervolted but the HD3870 I used in that system used considerably more power then your HD3850.

Try undervolting your CPU and see if it helps a bit.

Prices vary quiet a bit from place to place but ~$1000 is max I guess.

A $500 laptop (in USA) could easily be $750 or more in Denmark.

Lenovo X201 looks very nice but it's ~$2300 :shock:
Acer Aspire TimelineX 3820-series (~$1050) looks good but I don't know anything about them.

Hello You can't generalize like that. Some Dell's might be quiet while others are definitely not. I have a Toshiba Portegé R500-100 and it's terrible noisewise but other Toshiba's i've heard are nowhere near as noisy (but still not quiet or silent). There are fanless laptops available. Stick a SSD ...

I'm pretty sure I used a 120 mm 1200 rpm Scythe Slipstream.
Either that or it was a 1600 rpm version of the same fan.

The fit-PC2i has a bit more horsepower.
