Yeah, they actually have decent laptops. I mean, it is a dell, but I've had one for about a year and a half-ish now, and have had no major problems with it. Usually have decent options on what type of components you want in it, but doesn't say what brand they are sadly.

For $1832 you can get...

 

Core 2 Duo T7200 2.0GHz

Windows Vista Home Premium

2GB of DDR2 533

NVIDIA 7900GS

8x DVD burner

80GB SATA hard drive

17" WUXGA screen (1920x1200)

 

I can tell you from experience that Dell's laptops are top notch.

I have a Core 2 Duo/ATI X1400 E1505 and I love it

You can't get that powerful of a configuration from anywhere for the money...

I have the Dell e1705 w/7900GS with 1GB of ram.

Intel® Core™ Duo Proc T2250 (1.73GHz/533MHz/2 X 1MB L2 Cache)

[222-3353]

LCD Panel 17 inch UltraSharp™ Wide Screen UXGA Display with TrueLife™

[320-4926]

Memory FREE!1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz

[464-9485]

Video Card 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 7900 GS

[320-4779]

Hard Drive 60GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive

[341-2942]

 

I got it back in July 06. It cost $1076 with a boatload of coupons and sales. It can play anything.

In fact, if I had known 2 years ago that I could get a lappy with that much power, I would have went with lappy only in my house. Right now I use it for trips using GPS and watching DVDs when camping. The e1705 is the same as the 6400 on the business side.

 

You might be able to get buy with this, 15.4" screen: http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/con...c=bndwe1b&s=bsd

upgrade to the 256mb card (I use Nvidia exclusively due to Linux graphics drivers working really well compared to ATI) and 2GB of ram (do the ram on your own with aftermarket stuff), sell the onboard ram on ebay. Spend the extra $100 on the ultrasharp screen, they are nice. Look on ebay for 'dell coupon' and see what applies.

Get the 6cell and 9cell battery combo for long DVD movies.

Get the Bluetooth adapter to sync your phone and headset with the lappy.

Sager Notebooks are very good. You can save a few bucks using a reseller like http://www.powernotebooks.com/

 

Just an option to consider. Getting a true game machine at your price will not be easy. I'm talking no lag or slow downs later in the game.

 

If you could get the Dell that faheyd mentioned for the same price that would be good. I could not find it at that price now.
