I was insinuating that there is no 'good' gaming laptop. Just laptops that can play a few games. But if you are going to get a laptop to game on, that one looks pretty solid. The new Toshiba's out are good too.

CS:S isn't a game to brag that you can max, because a 7600gt destroys CS:S at 1600x1200 resolution, my game can do Medium settings if I had the game

true i guess. That same laptop was lagging while playing NFS: pro street while the evga geforce 7600gt co did just fine. I think it was the cpu in that laptop though cause it wasn't a dual core.
