Choose-my-laptop-filter. This is, in broad strokes, what I'm considering: 15" Lenovo W520 with the 1080p screen, 16Gb RAM and dual SSDs in RAID 0. Questions inside.

(a) Is there anything else out there that I should be looking at? The panel's the most important bit, but "weighs less" would be awfully nice.
(b) Is it possible to set a pair of SSDs up in RAID 0, and dual-boot Win/Lin on them? Am I setting myself up for a lot of pain, and not much performance increase? (Assume backups are taken care of)
The machine's going to be a workstation, running multiple VMs (with the Windows partition for games), but I'll be carrying it to client sites daily (public transport). If there's anything you think I've missed, please feel free to weigh in.
