Steal on gaming grade laptop
 
I was glancing through the laptop section and found something of gaming quality.

It is a Dell Vostro. In the small buisness line-up.

The thing comes with a 8600gt M and a core 2 duo for $700 out the door. :D

The laptop version of the 8600GT is probably a gimped version of the real 8600GT, and the real 8600GT is a gimped version of itself. I wouldn't bother gaming on that thing... Still a great deal for 700 bones.

yup, but it is only used in spain and no other spanish speaking countries
its a verb form of "Estar" and referrs to as "Ya'll" as a group of males/females

You'd have to think about the power usage and heat output of the higher end 8 series.

Actually it can with that 65nm fabrication process, and the fact that it consumes less power than the GTS, GTX, or Ultra.
