  1. I do not live in the US so rebate would not apply to me, so I am asking which of these laptops i found at tigerdirect.com would be the best. I am just playing games that do not really need that much, (world of warcraft, need for speed carbon and counter strike). thanks for any information given.
    It is of urgency :p sorry my dad says i have to tell him today. Thing is he only told me today to choose lol

    Jacal, I may be dead wrong. But I dont think your gonna get the gaming experience you are wanting from any of those laptops you list. Only onboard graphics, 512 ram, just not so sure about that.

    Not in that price range for gaming. I could give you links to some but they are way out of your budget range. Maybe someone else here can recommend something.
