    See if www.tiny.com do refurbished laptops.
    Laptops in that pricerange usually only have integrated graphics, good enough for everyday computing, but not for gaming. A reasonable graphics solution in a laptop would be the ATI Radeon Mobile.
    You'd be better off getting a PC for that money. Check again the same www.tiny.com.

    The box of Call of Duty (or the website) will tell you the minimal requirements. Call of Duty needs DirectX9.0c compatibility, 32MB graphics.
    Go do some homework using Google.

    Ok well I just had a laptop but sold it recently. It ran Call of Duty perfectly in 1024*768 highest settings and it only set me back about £489. Bought it from www.technomatic.co.uk

    AS for the specs:
    Celeron 1600
    512mb Pc2700 DDR Ram
    20gb Hard Drive
    nVidia GeForce MX 420go

    It really was a good laptop, bought it in like July 2003. My advise is to go to that website, and look for a laptop (usually budget ones have a Celeron 2.8ghz) and also make sure you don't get one that has "Intel Extreme OnBoard Graphics" because we all know how crap OnBoard graphics is.

    Gorg :knock:
