Need to purchase a laptop...

suadeosuadeo Registered User
Hey hey!

Ok, I need to buy a new laptop within the next few days. I don't have many requirements. Pretty much the only two things I need to worry about is the laptop being up $1,000 and to make sure it doesn't have a Intel graphics chip set. (HDMI port would also be nice)

The laptop would be used for the following:
  1. Gaming (old games, maybe SC2?)
  2. Programming in XNA
  3. Browsing the internet

I have been looking at one laptop found at best buy.

Should I stick with this one or should I get something a bit more powerful? I will end up building a PC for gaming in a few months, so this is mostly to hold me over until then.

My 360 is [strike]back[/strike] [strike]bricked[/strike] back! :D

    If you can order online check:

    Acer Aspire AS5740G-6395 at Newegg

    and the new Gateway NV series with Core i5 and the ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 at their site. There are a few different designs and go for 799.99 US dollars.
