People buy laptops all the time and expect them to perform like desktops, when there is no way that is possible. With a gaming laptop, you should be happy you can actually play the games, since most laptops wont even start up bf2. You don't get a laptop for maxing out games.

I was very happy with the performance of my laptop, considering it was a laptop and I could play pretty much every game on the market with decent FPS. I need portability for school, which forced me to get something smaller.

HA! Dont tell that to Alienware or Voodoo! Their lappys outperform even some of our desktops!

The pentium M's own for gaming. Most likely, more so than athlon 64's. The problem with them is that they can only be used in laptops. I don't want to go into detail on why they are better. Wait for gaara to get here.
