Default Laptop to Run BF2

Ok so basically, I want a laptop that will run BF2 on low/medium well, almost fine.

My budget is about 1200$.

I havnt really been watching the laptop market recently and I took a look and am really confused with all the different processors the duos and stuff.

So basically I need to know what specifictions.

The single most important thing is to make sure you get good video. Get atleast an ATI x1600/Nvidia 7600. Anything less isn't going to be good enough for the kind fo gaming you'll want to do. I'd recommend getting this and grabbing another 1gb of ram: - ASUS F3 Series F3T-AP042C NoteBook AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56(1.80GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 1GB DDR2 667 120GB 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 - Retail - Patriot 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Notebook Memory - Retail

A great gaming laptop for under $1200--will play everything you want it to. Double check Asus' site for compatible ram to be sure but this ought to be what you need. Otherwise a laptop with a Core2Duo and similar video card is around $1400 if you can afford it.
