Re: Gaming Laptop(couple questions)
I personally have a Dell XPS laptop. It is nearly 2 years old now, but it is still great for gaming and I haven't upgraded it at all. I used to use a desktop, but with University work and such I found a laptop much easier.
A lot of the time however it is not just about whether a laptop is capable. I'm sure you should easily find a laptop out there within your budget that will play the top of the range games. It is also about what games you play. For example, I had no problem playing WoW on a laptop, but I know a lot of my friends hated it because they felt they didn't have enough UI space. I personally hate playing FPS's on a laptop, but if you have a TV/Monitor lying around, and a spare keyboard, you can just hook them up and play like that. A lot of the time it's just personal preference.
