I am in the market for a new laptop. I should have around 700$ soon from tax refunds and I wanted to get myself a nice laptop for my trips on the weekends. I have a few things that I hate to see in a laptop. I can stand a glossy laptop. My friend has one and its a fingerprint magnet. That drives me crazy. Also, I really dont want a HUGE laptop either. Just a decent sized one. I need it to be able to possibly run mw2 maybe on low-med settings. Maybe someone here can help me find just what im looking for. Well I have some errands to take care of so I will be back in a few hours for this thread.

Thanks for those recommendations. The Toshiba looks really nice as well as the other. Im kinda hesitant to get the other bcause I've never heard of the brand.

+1 Lenovo are making steady progress and are moving up the ladder. They are a big name in china, but they are crunching market share worldwide too.:)
