Default Inspiron 9300, Can it run Call of Duty2?

I got this junky laptop for x-mas (cost 1300 CDN) and i was looking at returning it and getting an Inspiron 9300 with Nvidia Gefore 6800GT in it.

Does this PC have an AGP slot? I dont know where to look in the specs.

Thanks to any that helps.

return your junky notebook, and get something other than a dell. Dells are terrible when it comes to gaming, just read this:

and this is their high end computer. pathetic isn't it? yeah, good call on deciding to buy somewhere else or building your own computer.

Deepsix the Dell, and while you're at it, consider getting a desktop. Notebooks aren't fun to game with.
I have a laptop and all I use it for is it's mobility factor. I take it with me when I make a house call to fix a computer. It's also handy for grabbing directions when I have to find an address quickly.
Thing is though, these smart phones are capable of doing most of the things I need a mobile computer for and they cost way less. I'll more than likely sell the laptop and go with a smartphone in the near future.

What would be a good idea is to return your laptop and get a desktop gaming comp. That would make your games sooooo much faster! I have a sim on a laptop and a desktop and the laptop sucks! U should get a good desktop for the amount it costs to get a ok laptop.

If you do want to get a laptop consider HP's Ze6000 or Ze8000 series, they are pretty nice for the money I'd say.
