Hey,
I was just wondering if anyone knows of some good laptops out there for gaming. I would like HP or Compaq, or Toshiba, etc. Not Alienware because they are expensive. I don't really care about HDD capacity, screen size, battery life, etc. All i really care about is a good video card.
My max price would be 2 grand.
Thanks,
Jack

Within your price range, I would recommend any of these three models:

Gateway M685-E

http://www.gateway.com/products/gconfig/proddetails.asp?seg=sb&system_id=m685esbb

HP nx9420

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF05a/321957-64295-89315-321838-f1-1839153.html

HP Pavillion dv9000t

http://www.shopping.hp.com/series/c...EUhEltt77xZGN9MZVbjW4CIUiO92d4yYyNxsx!5160476

Each are customizable, so you can go lower on hdd and others that you don't want to beef up graphics. Haven't come across too many cost effective portables with more than 256MB of Dedicated Video RAM.

Ok, thanks.
I got the gateway down to just under 2 grand, so thats good, with the t7400 processor, and the Go 7900 GS graphics card.
I also customized your third one, with the 512mb card, but im wondering if the 7600 is good enough, it is 512mb but...
And im not a huge fan of dell, but thanks :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
