Well you can go with Acer, Asus, HP, Dell, HP, Leveno among various others. That will be your call.

But you will want at least a Core 2 Duo with 2GB of RAM and a dedicated Video card. Something like a Class 1 on our GFX Card list.

That will be roughly the specs you will want to run the games smoothly and with Medium GFX. You could always go for more RAM or something if the cost allows for it.

Don't go lenovo if you wan't a gaming laptop. Your best bet is to go through newegg.com and check out what they have to offer. If you want a "gaming" laptop, then the videocard should at least be an hd3650 or a 9600m.

You know for $2000, heck even $1200, you could get one that maxes out Call of Duty, even COD4 or COD:WAW...

Gateway - FX Edition Laptop with Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology - P-7805u

If you have a Best Buy close to you, or you can have it shipped to you too.
