Need A Laptop to Compliment My Desktop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I do all my gaming and intensive stuff on my desktop. I want a laptop that I can use when I am not home, or want to lounge on my couch or whatever. I would like the screen to be 15.6" or smaller, also I dont wanna spend more than $400. Here are a couple I am looking at.

Over Budget - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834100123

Vostro V13 http://www.compuvest.com/Desc.jsp?iid=1666350

HP DM1Z - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...7BBTkwCjCECjCE

Feel free to recommend more, those are just a few I have came upon.

Edit: The only reason I am looking at the Macbook is because I have never owned an Apple computer and I though it would be cool to try out.

Avoid HP like the plague and go with the Dell Vostro.

Trust me on this! I worked for a PC repair shop for several years and HPs are the most unreliable machines ever, pretty much on par with Acer.

The Dell Vostro range is great - you pretty much get Dell Latitude build quality for half the price.

OOh I just noticed you can get a MacBook for $450.

If you can stretch to it, get the Mac instead! Awesome little laptops those
