Hi guys
I got a question,
i wanna buy a laptop and i want it to be a mostly gaming one.. the thing is that my parents are getting me it a i wont be able to change it for like 3 years so i need it to be like the most modern hardware.

No if you want to game and have it be futureproof, I suggest an AMD 64-bit CPU, 1GB RAM AT LEAST, and a 6800 or above.

Thats a great laptop, it will be futureproof. Does it have 64-bit? If not you need to seriously consider it...

Most companies use Intel processors, and I don't think Intel has released their 64 bit proccessors yet, but if they have, I don't think anyone has put them in a laptop yet.

A 2.13GHz Pentium M?

Geez, that's bigger than Dell's XPS gaming laptop.

The only thing that lappy could use would be a bigger hard drive... but 60gig ain't bad at all.

OHHH!! I was looking at that site (good site w/ great prices IMO) and I only saw like 2 of em when you click "notebooks". I didn't see that mall.

Great find! I am getting a laptop in like a year and I need a gaming one. I'm very glad you found that!
