    Well... Not bad for a laptop. Kinda pricey tho. You could have build a killer 2x8800GTS rig with that money...

    Good Laptop but for $1600 i would have expected HP to throw in a 1680x1050 display for a 17" screen. Though the 1440x900 doesnt sound that bad also. Have fun with the laptop m8.

    I personally am going to stay away from 64 bit operating systems for right now. Too many potential headaches.

    I think gaming on a laptop is stupid. Desktops are made for gaming, not laptops. And laptops are uncomfortable for gaming.

    I don't need max res and detail either, look at my specs...
    I'm just saying, laptops get hot, and they're just not made for gaming... there's nothing wrong with playing an occasional game on a laptop you take with you on vacation or something, but to make a laptop your main rig is just rediculous imo. There's very little overclocking ability, it's uncomfortable for gaming, etc

    I agree. With 1200$ you can get Quad-Core and a HD 3870, whats better than that??

    Nice laptop man! Vista X64 is a great system, better than XP 32bit IMO.

    This might rival that system. :)

    There are very decent laptops out there. It is just a matter of looking for them.

    Heck even this one is a good one for its price.

    well the most i will play on it are HL1 mods, HL2 and WoW

    i mean i also have a PC but the laptop will mostly be used to repair other PCs

    cuz the way i see it if u get a gaming laptop then u get a laptop thats good for anything
    games require lots of memory and great hardware
