Default Laptops!!

Well i'm looking into buying a nice laptop and i'm kind of split between what i want to get. I dont want to spend and outragouse amount i just want a nice one to play WoW, Counter Srike. Ive been looking into the dell xps m1210 with 2GB ram and the upgraded NVIDIA card and its running with the Intel Dual-Core. Its a nice laptop but i'm also looking into CyperPower Inc. they have some nice laptops for a good price. I'm not sure what to favore more, if anyone has any opinions on this matter or even have a better direction i should be going in let me know. Thanks

Check reseller ratings site before you buy, Cyberpower has a lot of mixed reviews that kept me from buying from their site. I bought an ABS laptop from newegg, turned out very well for me. What is your price range?
I'm not a big fan of Dell laptops, they tend to run hot and their video cards use hypermemory/turbocache rather than being fully dedicated.

i want to spend anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500. http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/n...nfigurator_top thats the one i'm looking at but with 100 GB hard drive and 2 GB ram. Ilooked up the video card and it was rated pretty well and that will cost me between 1,300 and 1,500.

Get this and add another gig of ram. This is the exact same laptop I have, works great plays FEAR and Oblivion just fine. Same thing as the one you posted just made by ABS instead of Cyberpower. It's within your price range and ABS is a much higher rated manufacturer than Cyber/Ibuypower. The ABS lappy is the exact same thing (even uses the same msi barebones) just built by them instead. Plus shipping will be cheaper from Newegg.

edit: battery life of either laptop is around 2:15 max, is this enough for you?

Go to HP.com and customize one there. I just customized one with the same specs you guys have been talking about for a little less than $1300.
