If you don't mind used, definitely a Used FX. I saw one with a 1200p screen, and 9800m go for $500. This will play any game out there. These also have 2 HDD bays, so you can RAID.

Oh sorry guys I forgot to mention. I will do some light gaming, I'm a college student mostly using it for school work so a longer battery life will be preferred. I would like the laptop to be smaller than 15", I also don't want a number pad on the side. I'm currently using a 17" laptop with a number pad and it's very annoying.
Edit: I'm currently looking at a alienware m11x. I won't be buying until I get my financial aid money in about two weeks.

All I can think of are ASUS UL30/80 series that will give you 9 hours of battery life, some models have switching integrated/dedicated graphics.

Alienware m11x, cheap, can play every game out atm.. 6hrs battery life browsing etc, 2-3hrs gaming.. awesome laptop overall and looks cool
post #16 of 39
I would recommend getting a laptop with a DVD drive.
My friend has the M11x and it's really annoying to carry around the external. =P

I would honestly go with one of these personally, I've been debating on picking one up for myself.

Yes agree, if you wanna use an external drive just dont buy the m11x.. If you have every game on steam and personal stuff on external drive then yes go for it.

light gaming you dont need dedicated graphics. avoid AMD. you want an intel core i3 or better, and for just over your budget, if you value a LED backlit KEYBOARD,(all laptops should have this!) as well as LED display, and a very good rep. for quality as far as major mass producers are concerned, the choice is clear......


http://us.toshiba.com/computers/lapt...60/A660-ST2N03

intregarated intel GPU is actually what you should be looking for, as the core i3,5.have the GPU on the CPU, conserving battery power, and providing you with a good value/performance match for your needs, and in your price range.

how about post some games youll want to play. my friend has a new intel gpu, i3 cpu. not sure on all the specs but he struggles at 30 fps on wow on low ( some med settings )

id go with a 5xxx or 4xx gpus if you wanna game, or id Wait for Amds APUs to come out. you could get Netboot and still game.

I had the U45JC-A1 model which is pretty much the same laptop. Although the price tag was $980 when I purchased it.
