Need laptop advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have a HUGE gateway FX laptop. I want to sell it and get a somewhat smaller laptop. What I want out of a laptop is I guess somewhat basic. Being able to do light gaming is something that would be nice but isnt necessary. Games like Tropico 3, Red Alert 3, Men of War, etc. I basically freelance website design and watch alot of movies and shows. I need lots of space, and decent power is good for what I do: 4gbs? of RAM and a decent dual core processor at least. I would like the biggest screen I can get, and more or less do not want a small screen. I watch tons of movies and shows from my laptop and usually have others watching with me so the huge screen was one of the main reasons I got the laptop I have. I want to spend maybe 400-600 or so. Less expense is always better obviously.

Oh, and backlit keys is legitimate lol. If that is possible. I love my g15 for nightime computing!

Will that do for light gaming and video game design? I dig my FX, but it overheats sooooooo bad its crazy. The specs are GREAT but what good are they if it could start a fire when using them? :/
