  1. these laptops fall right into my budget. i would get a slightly better one but i'm also upgrading my desktop to a GTX 460.

    I would like the laptop that will let me switch from program to program the fastest, and play steam games (with in reason of course) I think its the Acer. But if techspot community wants to help me that would be great!

    Acer$379.00
    Or
    Compaq $348.00
    maybe even
    eMachines$279.00

    the eMachines price is what gets my attention, but i have a bad feeling when it comes to that company...

    The Acer laptop would be you best option. It has the only real option for playing steam games at reasonable settings.
