Default 900$ laptop build

So I need a laptop and I have to keep it under 900$ with the OS, windows 7 home, tax shipping everything, has to be under 900$.

Only restrictions, it has to have a webcam, and hd size doesnt need to be bigger than 500 maybe 750g, no ssd i want to put all the money into the processer and graphics card. Other than that I am looking for sheer performance because I am hoping to play battlefield 3.

Any suggestions? the hp pavallion looks interesting. thoughts?

Default Re: 900$ laptop build

For $900 have fun trying to play BF3 well. Laptops can play games but generally have a price premium over the pc equivelent.
If you want to game, buy a pc. If you want portability, get a laptop.

When I bought a laptop I tried to get one with a good graphics chip, just over a year later I have to run bf3 at 1024x768 on low settings to run it at 20-25fps.
