Seeking advice on alienware and/or voodoo and falcon laptops

Note: I am posting this discussion twice to cover the topics concerning alienware, voodoo and falcon.
I am seeking information and opinions on some of the high end laptop gaming systems like alienware, falcoln or voodoo.
Here's my scenerio. Due to the recent floods in New Orleans, my family has lost all of their old historical photos. It may take some time, but it appears that I may be able to gather the majority of the old photos from extended family and recreate some of the pictoral geneology. I am currently in the process of purchasing a Microtek scanner and I would like to purchase a high end laptop capable of handling the graphics functions. I will more than likely be using Adobe photoshop to edit and I may load linux as a second os to make use of some of the shareware graphics programs available.
I recently started looking into alienware but have heard mixed reviews. My question is this: "Is it worth it to get one of the high end gaming systems for the graphics quality, like alienware, or stick with the major players like Lenova or HP?"
btw - Here's a hint. Eventhough people don't think in these terms but when there's a threat of natural disaster, have all your important papers and photos centralized so you can grab them in a hurry. Alot of other things can be replaced but the photo memoirs can't.
