Default Two lappies on a budget

I have 800$ for one and 1400$ for the second.
The 800$ is strictly for Word processing and doing lots and lots of paperwork.
The 1400$ is a weak gamer computer mostly to play old lan games without lag.

Can anyone throw a hint? I'm clueless when it comes to laptops.

Casual (AMD 4000+ x4) (Stock mobo) (750 Gig + 8 TB Xternal) (150 RAPTOR) (9800GT OC x2)
(OCZ PowerStream 800 Watt) (2G OCZ) (XP/Vista)
Torrenter (1.05GHZ) (Stock mobo) (250GiG) (9200 Radion) (Stock PSU) (768MB) (XP)
Laptop (Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.8Ghz) (2G) (8600GT) (XP/Vista) (500GiG)

Default Re: Two lappies on a budget

I'd spend less on the office one and maybe more on the gaming one.

I've heard good things about the dell vostros. Of course everybody loves Thinkpads...the new ideapads are apparently for gaming, but I haven't used them.
