Default Need avg. game laptop

Hey, my girl friend is looking for a laptop with the price range of 1000-1200 MAX. Looking for 1gb ram, and decent HD space and an avg GFX card, nothing too fancy. As long as its not a integrated one. Any help for suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks

It does have shared memory but with 2GB it makes up for it.

HP makes good laptops, the graphics built into the dv6000 series are decent and you can get cards with dedicated memory (256mb I believe). Configure one of these to your needs

If you want to do some research on laptop graphics read this article:
