Returning to PC gaming.... what constitutes a decent gaming laptop these days?
Time was, back in the olden days of Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament, I kept up on PC hardware and generally had a pretty good idea of what would make a good gaming rig... Those days are long gone.
Lately I've found a number of games that I want to play that aren't available on my army of consoles, and the coming of a new Diablo is the clincher. It is time to return to the madness that is PC gaming. Unfortunately, I don't have space at home to dedicate to a tower and multiple monitors so I am looking into getting a laptop. [Maybe my 4 year old MacBook would cut it, but this is an excuse to lust after some Alienware hardware... *shiny*]
So, any recommendations on what to look for in a gaming laptop? Any websites that you know of with good gaming-focused performance stats? Any reasons not to buy a laptop in the next three to six months? [Such as, "In Nov Intel is expected to release their Sand-Castle series of mother-in-law-boards which is twice as fast and practically guilt free (*warning, may contain guilt)"]
