You are not alone.

I settled for the Lenovo T61p 15" Widescreen. It is a bit pricey but worth it for mobility gaming.

What realm do you play on?

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....#productdetail

dude
bestbuy's got dell inspiron's with the AMD processor on sale for $600
get this... 3 GB of RAM
and the ATi video card with 256mb
omg

i noticed that dell no longer offers AMD processor on their website
is AMD no good for the laptop or something?
why is BB trying to dump all the AMD dell laptops?



http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Compa...oductDetail.do

or a Compaq at circuit city
pretty much same specs as the dell except 2 gigs and $100 cheaper
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

because when making video games, Intel/Nvidia are used as the benchmark rather then AMD/ATI.

simply put, games are made around Intel/Nvidia....AMD/ATI are made around video games.

Consider yourself lucky and take it as an excuse not to get hooked into it again.
