anything with a 5650 and a multi core cpu will be good. My buddy got one from Acer and has yet to be able to play anything on max.
The only reason you'd need a fancy smancy video card is if you plan on outputting to a bigger monitor. Otherwise a 5650 will be more than enough (he played batman on high with 30-40fps)
I normally hate Acer but this one is very well built. It's very sturdy, it doesn't creek like most toshiba's and dells when you press on the plastic. The heat is very well disappated. It's all in all just very well built, even I like it. And it'll save you 100 bucks to go buy a new mouse or something.

I own one and can tell you they are pretty great. I have some benchmarks below.
overkill much? for a laptop? What would be the use of a 5850 on that size monitor. It's overkill and useless heat unless theres plans for external monitor.Edited by SpykeZ - 12/26/10 at 12:26pm
