Default Gaming Laptop Needed:

hey guys, i'm going on a 6 week vacation this winter and i will NOT be able to make it 6 weeks without my computer! so, i think my only solution is a laptop.

i need something that can atleast play old cod and dod:s. thing is i dont want to spend more than 800-900.00, is this possible? i was looking at bestbuy.ca and they have a couple that have a GT 425M, 6 gig mem, and a i5 480m for around 900.00 ... can i do better? like i said it just needs to have BluRay and be able to play a few older games. TIA

I kinda picked that one because it fell in your price range. I am partial to nvidia actually, but check out some of the Asus laptops on newegg. They have a wide range with components that I'm sure you will like. I saw one with a 540M for a little over a grand.

I got one of these about 4 months ago. Great laptop. 17" screen is beautiful with a Nvidia 460M card. 8Gigs of ram. Very quiet and very nice cooling out of the back. A power sucker of course with the big screen and so on. Don't run it much without the power brick. Has been able to run every game Ive thrown at it. I got the xa1 but looks like you cant get that one now. Have to get the A1. Only difference is that it comes with a blue ray drive and a custom back pack I think.

Those two chips should be pretty close in speed. There is a nice long list of comparisons for notebook GPUs here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-...ist.844.0.html

Usually if they are in the same group or within 10 - 20 of each other on rank they are going to be fairly close.
