Have you ever played games on a 14 inch screen? Just make sure you try one out at a box store showroom before you purchase one online.

Am I really the only one in the world who doesn't mind gaming on small screens? I have been gaming on my 11 inch Alienware since 2010 with no problems whatsoever. Infact, with the Clevo w110er disappearing from online stores I wish someone else would step up and make another 11 inch gaming notebook, my little alien is showing its age.

anyway I'm not trying to spend too much just want something to get by on lans with my friends and such and this just popped out of nowhere at bestbuy for 599.

That's even better since you could just return it to the store if it's not to your satisfaction. Nice find! smile.gif

The G46VW is nice, but the screen is not good, keep that in mind. Performance wise, it will be great for almost anything, since it has a 720p screen and the resolution is low.
If you want to save money, then you can take it though.

Thanks for the replies. I finally got to play with it for a while and I'm very happy with it. On the plus side since it's not refurbished and openbox got a full year warranty and it happened to be a better processor i5 3230M not 3210M. Plus this thing seem to cool itself real well, Hourse of gaming and it met 73'c on gpu and 65'c on cpu. Few negatives with this unit is there are no optical drive bay, no removable battery nor easy access to the internal component, so I literally have to take the thing apart to upgrade a hard drive.

Since I can't put an extended warranty thru squaretrade so I'm hoping this thing lasts me 3 years haha.
