I'm lookin at laptops too, particularily this one:
It suits gaming and office work just fine for your price. I configured it and for about $1600 I upped the processor and some other crap....
- Intel Pentium M Processor 1.73GHz 2mb L2 Cache 533 MHz FSB
- 1gb RAM dual channel DDR2 SO-Dimm at 533 MHz
- 80 gb hard drive 5400 RPM SATA
Oh, and the 256 mb NVidia Geforce 6800 is standard too
hope thats a little helpful. Otherwise try the dell xps laptops.
