  1. hey all..i have a few questions.. i found this site really helpful. for one.. i found out that intel centrino laptops are good for gaming.. which was helpful because i want a pretty decent gaming laptop within the 1,200-500 price range.. and i wasnt sure if intel centrino would be better the P4. but you all confirmed this.. BUT .. are compaq laptops good for gaming? i need to buy a laptop for school and i want it to have pretty good gaming capabilities to run games like ARmy and call of duty 2 and battlefield 2 and games like those..
    do these specs look like they would be good enough?.. oh and also. .wat is better for gaming.. AMD TURion MT or Centrino?

    If you want a "gaming" laptop, you should be looking at
    Alienware or Falcon Northwest or Dell XPS

    It's likely you'll be very disappointed running Battlefield 2 on anything else.
