Gateway P-6860FX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The price on this is just stupid (in a good way). I haven't even really seen a new laptop with the 8800GTS for less than 3k, let alone 2k...and it is really starting to hurt my head, especially when it's coming from a store that charges 30 dollars for a VGA cable...

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1204332501169

How is this possible? Is it a joke? What's the catch?! I went and looked at it...twice...wanted to take it home with me... but I got denied for financing. Is this for real? A Crysis-on-high capable laptop for 1350? A GATEWAY?? I know the CPU isn't all that but from what I have seen it is fairly easily upgraded, though I think I could only upgrade with another 667MT/s chip...so in that case I would go with a T7400 I think...

Anyone have this? Benchies? Haven't seen a good review for it yet...Mainly lookin for what kinda CS:S, BF2, and COD4 framerates it can push in respectable settings. Hell, while I'm at it, hows it handle Crysis in maxed out settings?
I keep thinking the guy who marks the prices accidentally hit '1' instead of '3' when he marked this one, and I wana buy it before he realizes it!
