That laptop would blow my socks off. 2 nvidia geforce 7900 in sli, 1gb of ram, and a 19" lcd. Now that thing owns.

There is no way i could afford it though.
Ouch that looks like crap, and probably gets about 30 seconds of battery life.

I can think of alot better ways to spend $4000, even on a laptop

They aren't usually meant to have long battery life - they are a desktop replacement. It wouldn't be worth getting a laptop like that if one was traveling more than 3 hours w/o an outlet.

I just checked out the Acer Ferrari and I don't know how good the graphics are but they don't look like they'd be that good.

Dell C640 P4 2.20GHz 512MB 40GB FDD 14.1" Windows 2000 - B Dell C640

Would that laptop play CS:S?

I know it doesn't have a cd rom drive but i don't really need one.

No.. it wouldn't. Not on high settings. Maybe... MAYBE medium and you will have lag.

Will an intel celeron play those games?

Will an Amd Sempron play those games?

What are the Amd Sermprons made to do? Game, business use?

Ati radeon x1100 good graphics for a laptop?
