hey MindoverMaster, is the Toshiba laptop I posted the best he could get for his budget? As far as I've checked, this laptop is the best. I've seen similar laptop for cheaper, only change is that the dedicated card is Nvidia GeForce 420M but as far as I've seen, HD Radeon 5650 is better.

Okay, MoM
Hmm, just a question, is there a laptop with dedicated and integrated graphics cards under 1000$? ( I heard that help increase battery lifetime and decrease power consumption significantly, by switching between them as necessary I suppose ). I haven't seen one in the price range of igi3blade.

Hmm that's good but :
1-The i5 and i7 versions don't have the feature of integrated card? The core 2 duo version has a 1.3 ghz dual core processor, which seems to be so slow unless I'm missing something
2-11'' sounds too small for me

The C2D version is slower, yes, but it can still play the latest games.

To keep it on less power consumption, with a beefy GFX card, you have to sacrafice something. To keep it under $1000 too.

The Core iX version has it too, for some reason I though it was more than $1k when it's actually $950

Well, I don't really mind getting a smaller laptop than 15", just no bigger, so I can take it to class.

Even 15" is a little heavy, IMO. I have a Dell Vostro 1500 that I bought in 2007. It was quite heavy. Then I got a netbook. This thing is light as a feather.
