Default laptop question

Hey, i'd like some feedback on this laptop. the only thing that seems to make me hesitate on buying it, is that it's the x600 series gfx card. i would like to play games on it decently. hopefully call of duty 2?
thanks

If you could recommend other laptops that are good for gaming and are under $2000 that'd be great as well.

- Shared video card memory

- 1GB RAM, with 256MB RAM eaten up by the video card. That's only 768MB total. You'll need to upgrade.

- Heavy, 7.5 pounds. For portablity, its pretty impractical.


For gaming, a desktop is a much better choice. A Shuttle-sized PC with an LCD monitor is going to be much cheaper, and look as portable

128mb video memory + up to 128mb shared. That's what the HyperMemory means.

Here's a link to the PriceGrabber page for the lappy I bought my daughter:

Enter your ZIP to get total cost including shipping.

You may want to browse the notebook section of PriceGrabber:

Choose options on the left, and click to check prices on the right when you see something you like.
