First time buyer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well its time for me to buy my first laptop. I will taking a few trips with work and wanna bring along some extra entertainment. I will be doing the usual surfing the web, playing media, etc. I also will be playing EQ2 and other games on this laptop. So I need something with a little extra graphics capability then the standard X3100. Anything over 100gb's, 2+ Ram, and 14"+ for the screen. So far I have found a couple possible's, just wondering if anyone knew of some good deals atm. I will probably be buying the laptop this week. And another key factor is my budget is around $700 before Tax+S&H.

I would get a laptop with an 8600GT mobile video card in it at a minimum if you want to play games.
