Default 2k Laptop......

K, I wanna spend around 2k for a laptop. I'm deciding between Dell and HP. What are your opinions?

I want it for work and gaming. I also like the idea of surfing from my bed. lol I've become lazy I guess.

I did a little more digging and it seems that HP laptops are favored over Dell. The configuration Im looking to get is about the same price for either of them. Guess I'll go HP.

Try Alienware.

I'm not sure what they have to offer for $2000, but I know they have some pretty good laptops.

Get the HP, it's cheaper, and you can a 512mb Go 7600 in it. An Area 51 Notebook that I looked at was several hundred dollars more.

You can get a higher processor speed on the Alienware. It really comes down to whether or not you want to spend a few hundred dollars more on the Alienware
