Will 3930k fit in a laptop?

Im trying to decide if i want to build a new desktop or buy a high end laptop to replace my desktop. Im drifting more toward a laptop since its portable but anyways I need a hex core cpu which i know is hard to find on a laptop but i was looking around and noticed intel released there 6 core sandy bridge processors. Will the 3930 fit in a laptop that already has a sandy bridge cpu or are they different sockets? If they are different, are there any laptops it will fit into?

There are a few custom models that will accommodate desktop hex core, but they are very few and far between - and are ridiculously priced. So far they are limited to the first gen i7's (ie i7-990/990x) - I haven't seen any SB based 'desktop' chip based custom models out yet.

For SB, the i7-2960XM is the current fastest mobile chip, but that's still only a 4 core +HT. Haven't heard of any 6 core SB mobile chips being released soon.

Clevo is known for building such laptops.(desktop components in a laptop form). I would check with them.
