as for gaming notebooks go, the Dell mobile XPS gen-2 is your best bet. it uses the intel centrino, so it won't be nearly as quick as a P4, but it will run cooler and because of that, it allowed dell to overclock the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra in it. you can always upgrade the ram, and what you said you'll be doing i suggest about 1.5-2GB. if you need more CPU power, i think dell has some P4 options for their XPS's. the P4's are awesome for multitasking because of their hyper-threding. i'd stay away from the athlon 64 notebooks because once again, their multitasking performance isn't that of the pentium's, and they generally produce more heat for some reason. check out Dell's website, VoodooPC's website, and Alienware's website.
