Probably the best Core i7 laptop is the Apple MacBook Pro - either the 15" or 17": http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro
The beauty here is that you can develop for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux on the same machine (using VMware Fusion for Windows and Linux).
Check with your local Apple dealer for pricing in your region.
