I think gaming laptops are actually a good idea. Gaming on the go!

Thanks for all your advice. The reason i want a gaming laptop is because ill be headed to college soon and i want something more mobile. I'm hearing pentium M, core duo and core solo. I personally want the core duo, however is there really a big difference in choosing core duo over core solo or M. Also i think a 7900 is a bit expensive for my budget. I was thinking of getting the geforce go 7800. Is there a big gap between those two cards?

Both of those cards will do your gaming easily but the 7900 series has pretty much replaced the 7800's. Go for the Dual core M, easily the best mobile processors available.

Make sure you do get a system that has decent battery life, the bigger the processor and video card as well as the hard drive it will drain your battery quicker. The centrinos are the best in power consumption levels don't take that much and got a lotta grunt in them.
There are only Two things in life i regret doing... 1. Selling my Soul for Cash.... 2. Buying a Compaq.... I should have kept the Cash, huh.
