You won't be gaming at max settings. I'd suggest ASUS or Toshiba. Just be sure to focus on the GFX and sound card. You can always add the extra RAM and HDD later

If you don't mind buying something that's recertified, I'd like into this : Newegg.com - Recertified: ASUS G71GX-RX05

C2D P8700 2.53Ghz Dual Core
6GB DDR2
1GB GTX 260M
Vista Home Premium
500GB hard drive

Recertified is OK. Warranty is only a 90-day.

Hi there,

You should check out the Alienware M11x. It is a portable gaming laptop (only 4.4 lbs). It has an NVIDIAģ GeForceģ GT 335M video card and 1000 MB Dedicated graphics card. At $799, it fits within your budget. The screen is a bit smaller than other laptops (11.6") but it has great sound.

What do you think of this option?
