    ummm not to be rude, but good luck with that, i don't think i've seen any good laptops go for under 1200, but i could be wrong.

    laptops are best used for school work, not g aming...

    for a decent gaming laptop expect to pay around $1500-8000

    just get a relatively good desktop and a relatively cheap laptop for general use/school work

    Dude, there is a few for 699 that I was looking at. They're decent, but not good for gaming, I wouldn't think. Though you could upgrade.s

    yea..first of all, not the highest quality games for gfx, unless u max out CS:S i guess...

    and uhh this:
    http://www.ibuypower.com/ibp/store/configurator.aspx?mid=170

    for 989, best I can find. Thats all minimum stuff too...I'd say save up a while longer. And desktop for gaming, not laptop

    Dont bother with BF2. You'd need at least 1gb of ram..if u can get a system with that..maybe

    For your price range that's as good as its going to get.
    Laptops are more than desktops to start with, gaming components are more, so you can see where this is going.
