Hey guys, I'm selling my main system thats under my sig (not entirely by choice). Anyway, now im gonna get a laptop. I want something pretty nice, prolly looking to spend between $1000 and $1300. Ive been checking mostly newegg and ebay. I certainly dont mind getting something used if its good. I wanna be able to play games like COD2 with no problem at all, and if i could run COD4 in low graphics i would be thrilled. Tell me if you guys know of any other good sites or places to check, or just any especially good deals in general going on right now. Thanks a lot!

Chuck Norris appeared in the "Street Fighter II" video game, but was removed by Beta Testers because every button caused him to do a roundhouse kick. When asked about this "glitch," Norris replied, "That's no glitch."

You can buy my Dell b120 =) 3 years old lol
But anyways, look for dell laptops, depends what you really want. Dell has good gaming laptops, can get one for about $1500 that can game pretty well.

I've had 2 Dell laptops so far for work and they've both been very nice. Niether of them were gaming grade, but if their gaming laptops are like their business laptops, then that would be a good choice.

I currently have a high-end HP laptop for work and really like it. In fact, I like it better than any of the Dells I've ever used.

As for where to buy, ecost.com has good deals on refurbished products. I've bought a few things from them and their prices are great and their service is better than average.

When buying something online, I usually do some searching for coupon codes. Just enter "HP notebook coupon" into your favorite search engine and see what comes up. It might take some digging to find a coupon that's not expired, but after a little bit of work, you'll at least be able to save 10% or shipping charges or something. Also, deal forums like slickdeals.net has some good deals listed too.

Asus laptops. Great build quality, awesome graphics choices, and plenty of accessories. You can find them at Newegg and plenty of other stores.

Look for the Gateway FX series. BestBuy had them on sale, they rock.
