Default Recommended laptop!

What would you recommend for a good price but last pretty long, enough to actually play the present and future DX 9 games?

Personally I like IBM's because they will last a very long time...my friend has one that is 6 years old and it still works fine(a little slow...lol) I have a Thinkpad A20p and i love it. Stay away from Sony Vaio laptops. Dell and Gateway are also pretty good. Look for one with a mobile chip in it. They run much better in laptops than the regular CPUs

Dell got 1 type of Inspiron laptop that equipped with 64/128MB ATI9600Pro, i'm think can handle most of the games.

IBM laptops are amazing, my uncle has a really old one, at least 6 years, probably 8 or 10 lol. They last for literally donky's years.
