Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So, I've been out of the PC game for a long, long time, and I've basically decided I need to fix that. A desktop is out - I don't have the room for one, but a spiffy new laptop would be awesome. Problem is, I have no idea what to look for anymore, hardware wise. I've been looking at some laptops around stores, around $1000au - $1300au, but, yeah, aside from knowing what to look for Intel CPU wise, I'm out of my league now.
I pretty much want something that will run new games decently - I don't care if it won't run them with all options switched on, but I don't want to be playing an ugly mess of a game at 20fps (my old PC ran new games like this and is the reason I got out of PC gaming). I've been looking at some Core 2 Duo ~2.2ghz, 4gb ram laptops, but I have no idea what I should be looking for, graphics card wise, especially in a laptop.
I'm using Crysis Warhead as a goal - anything that will run that I'll be relatively happy with.
