  1. Iam looking to buy a good gaming notebook, with a price range from about 2,000 to about 2,500. I've looked into dell but that is a bit to exspensive for me right now.
    I'd like the Following specs in my machine:
    Video card of no less than 512MB
    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU around 2.13 GHz or more depending on the final price
    2GB of RAM, no less
    Hard Drive size doesnt matter, I have a big enough external to take care of memory for awhlile.
    Needs a wireless internet card of course
    OS doesnt really matter
    Battery with a Decent life, Iam not expecting to much seeing I know gaming notebooks usually burn the battery life pretty quick.
    I would like a brand with good Technical and Costumer Support, and a good reputation for Reliability
    A monitor that is HDCP-comliant as well

    I might be being kinda picky, but any help is appreciated, thanks everyone

    Hi and welcome..

    I see alot of models with your specified specs...
    Asus, Alienware and Acer at the most.

    for me, personally living in asia is being very hard to find alienware.
    so for acer, i've used my friend Acer Aspire 5920G which cost very cheap, about 1800USD. Only the processor is 2.00 ghz.

    and also, for asus, i'd recommend G1 (X1700 or Geforce8600).
    Asus Lamborghini VX2 was also good choice, using the 7700 card module.

    well, for alienware i believe most of them using X1800, 7800, 7900 and later which is more powerful. if you live in a region where alienware famous at, then it'd be good.

    the requirement that you'd like to include is :
    how big the screen you want it to be?

    and from those spec, only this seems serious ;):
    I would like a brand with good Technical and Costumer Support, and a good reputation for Reliability

    for that one, maybe you;d like to ask some techspot users who live in the same region. Good luck...
