Default Dell

I'm seriously thinking about getting the M1710 (modified) for my next lappy, but I'll have to sell my desktop(s) and my current lappy to get it. (Dell 8600)

I have read some good reviews (mostly) and I wanna see what ya'll thought about it. I want something that will play today's games and be compact enough to handle while I'm in Japan until I retire in '09. Any other comparable lappy's out there that might fit my bill better? of course the standard item apply:

2GB ram
dedicated GPU
XP home/pro (NO VISTA)
cpu speed can vary
100GB or better hhd space

and I do want something that will be with a warranty in case something does happen since I am going to be gone.

Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB

I know a good deal on a Laptop:

The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

only issue that its got Vista, and an 8400gs, but theres an option for an 8600m gt which could play some games....

or u could try Cyberpower for a laptop..

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
