I am looking at getting a good deal on a laptop. I want to be able to run some graphics softwares (AutoCAD, Photoshop, etc) And maybe run a game at low settings once in a while. 1Gb of ram or so, 100+ HDD, Core 2 Duo, or equivillent X2. I just stood in line at Circuit City for 8 hours in the freezing weather only to be about 2 people sort of getting a laptop so now I'm really pissed. Thanks!

How about the HP NX8420? (EM736AV)

T5600/1GB/120GB/15.4”/256MB x1600/VBus

I think it would have to be one of the best affordable notebooks out there... 'Tis only $1199 here in Aussie land.
