Ok Guys...

My wifes desktop is my old desktop from about 6 years ago...

It was top of the line back then, and it still runs ok, but I figured, hey she has asked for a new PC and Valentines day is right around the corner... Also, I can hear a bearing going out on a fan, not sure if it is on the CPU cooler or a case fan, but it doesnt matter she wants a new one...

The last PC we got was of the laptop variety... and because I have been playing PC games on it alot, she is not a happy camper...

So I was thinking for V-Day get her a new PC, but it needs to be one which wont break the bank.

I was thinking in the $600-800 USD range preferably on the lower end of that. Think I can get a decent laptop in that range?

Also since I will be using it occasionally to play games, it needs to have a middle of the road video card...

I am very hardware oriented, but I have VERY little experience with laptops so I would prefer a laptop by a major manufacturer so that if something goes awry I can send it in to be fixed...

Ideas suggestions?

Let's hear them!

Mike A!

You can go to bestbuy and get a nice laptop for around 600.

I see a lot of really decent laptops around 700 on Amazon and Newegg. Most of them with 4GB of RAM. All I can say is ... at that price ... I'd hit it.

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

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
