But people should understand laptops can but shouldnt be used for gaming (in my opinion) laptops are expensive for the power you get (only advantage is portability)

Well, I do travel a lot and I want to get back into PC gaming so I thought I'd get a gaming laptop.

I found this ONE
that I think is pretty good for a little bit under $1800 CAD. Is LG a good laptop company though?

thx again.

The LG one doesn't seem bad at all. Check www.resellerratings.com for that model and maybe other LG laptops to see how previous users have like it.

I've been reading around and I heard that the X1400 is junk for

gaming. I was looking at this

ACER

but I can't find a price for it on any Candian websites . Also, I was

looking at this

ASUS

one but it says BAREBONE on it so I'm guessing that means I have to

put it together myself?





Your thoughts?

I dunno, but I've decided to get that Alienware you posted earlier.

What would Dual 7900 GS's be equivelant to?

Is it worth the extra $400?
