    COD 4/5 then u can buy that lappy. And if u don't tell me the price, then i could only tell u not buy it if it's over 1000 USD.

    :confused:

    I found the hp 18.4" with bluray and 1920x1080 resolution (google)... :p

    It's nice and the price isn't that bad for a laptop...

    My only worry would be the 9600M GT -- I doubt if that will manage games at your native resolution... even for the desktop the 9600 is a mid-range, and laptop versions are always weaker. More worrying is that it isn't upgradeable, which means you can't decide to put a more powerful card if you need...

    Edit: I'd check these out if I were you.

    WUXGA is 1920x1200 which is a better resolution than 1920x1080.

    Lol I admit I give up unless you give a link!

    Clicky

    Clicky

    It's the 2nd one?
    The review still says it's 1920x1080 though... so be careful... Anyway it's still a good resolution!

    The link I gave him (Rock the British Sager) use the 9800M GTS or 9800M GTX, not the 9600M GT. And P8400 not P7350 processor.

    Edit: Sure Exavier 1920x1080 is a very good res, but if he can find a better res/better graphics for maybe a similar price... I'm trying to find the best bang for his bucks... Love doing 'online window shopping' for others! :)
