17" gaming laptop with 1920x1200 screen

Is anyone still manufacturing high-end laptops with 1920x1200 (not 1920x1080) screens? I'm looking for a luggable/7.5 to 8 pound size, 17" screen laptop, Ivy Bridge based Core i7 CPU with a serious dedicated GPU and 1920x1200 screen. Everything I can find uses 1920x1080. Battery life is not a concern, this would be used in a role like an occasionally relocated, folding desktop PC.

Help me find some games to love

Having been away from the PC gaming world for a while due to dodgy then broken laptop, I'm now looking with bemusement to find some great games. Most of the amazon/etc best-seller lists seem dominated by World of Warcraft and toys for Skylander. I'm mainly interested in RPGs and Action Adventure games. Strong plots a must. If they have fiddly controls then a nice learning curve is a must! [more inside]

Not too serious, not too silly board games

I'm looking for some board game suggestions. The target audience would never have the patience for serious German-style strategy games like Settlers of Catan. On the other hand, party games like Cranium or Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity are too freewheeling and silly for them. What are some games that fall into that sweet spot between serious and silly? Examples could be Rapidough, Pictionary, Balderdash. I haven't played it but I think Ticket to Ride might also fit in here.

What games did you play in study hall?

Some friends and I are planning to spend a Saturday holding what we are calling the Study Hall Olympics: a competition planned around the stupid games kids play in study hall or on the bus or wherever they have time to kill but have to stay put (paper football, thumb wrestling, paper-rock-scissors, &c.) We've come up with a handful but I'm looking for more. When you were in school, what were the best games of this sort?

It's the kind of J-pop you could really sumo wrestle to.

Which Japanese band / song is used in this video? They're very New Order'y, and I know the missus would like them a lot. Extra credit: Is there a pattern / design / instructions out there for making and playing with paper doll sumo wrestlers like this? Because, frankly, this has Rock'em Sock'em Robots beat all to hell.

IOS RPG FTW!

I want some immersive, RPG-style games for Android or iOS. I'm taking a long flight on Friday and I want to sink myself into something fun. I was really hoping Baldur's Gate would be out for iPad before my flight, but it looks like it's been pushed back to next week. I'd like something in the same vein. Preferably something without cutesy, cartoony or 8-bit style graphics.
