    I wouldn't recommend a laptop for gaming, u can play some games on it ofc but noting with high details.
    I bought a decent laptop last year [I'm just typing this on laptop ]
    HP Compaq 615 - Notebookcheck.net External Reviews

    I'm planing to add 1 more GB of ram memory next week...

    Atm u can find a decent laptop for 450-500 euros...

    it all depends whether you want a business laptop or a gaming laptop. Gaming ones are usually more expensive if you want to run your games at high qualities. Business ones are cheaper and can suit all you needs besides gaming. I'm also looking for a new laptop too (gaming that is :D)

    try to check computers w/ some good specifications. preferrably I think the lower the letter the better? (I need to look this up what I mean...it has to deal w/ connection/processing speed or something like that)

    I would recommend atleast a 2 Gig RAM if you can 4.
    Needs a decent processor Quad 2 duo or something like that ;o I cant look up the exact names since some reason school hates those searches...

    uhm w/e I wouldnt suggest getting a notebook by any chance...lol horrible little things w/ such a small screen.....Bad for gaming

    I HATE it when people ask this. What are you using the laptop for? Gaming? Business? Web browsing? Photo editing? Word processing? What operating system do you prefer; Windows, Mac, or do you install a form of Linux? I know the right laptop for my needs, but without knowing yours I can only blindly guess.

    Meh, Best Buy employees just stink. Anything computer-related is just pointless to ask as 999/1000 times I know more about it then they do.

    Circuit City still exists? :eek: There used to be like 3 or 4 of them within half an hour of me, they're all closed now, and I heard rumors about the company going bankrupt.

    No, only get a Mac if you're doing advanced photo/video/music editing. If not, go Windows or Linux.
