None. Laptops are not for gaming.

On a serious note, it would be nice if you could provide the GHz speed for the processors.

Then I can't really help you. Also, no graphics card? I can't make a decision about a gaming computer if I don't know the graphics card or processor.

Number 1 is excellent. Runs Crysis on very high. I have one myself, and it's the best purchase I've made so far.

He mentioned AoC at least three times, and he has WoW throughout his sig.

Avoid vista, get XP or Windows 7.

If you want to play games, do NOT get a laptop. Unless you're ready to spend 1,500$ +

Not enough info except that none of them have enough RAM.

I'm using this. Best laptop I have ever owned. (http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-w90vpa1-order-p-2562.html?gclid=CPGI26iOtZoCFQpgswodD20-cQ)

If you want a decent laptop that will be able to run anything above WoW on anything but extreme minimum graphics you will need a laptop with power, and you will more then likely spend upwards of 1700, a bit higher than what Death's Chill said but still accurate.

Not really. I game on a 4 year old laptop with a 3.3ghz single core, 256MB GF 6800 go, and 2 GB of 533mhz DDR2. It runs everything south of Crisis on medium or better settings. HQ dynamic shadows are pretty much the only major performance problem. I had to turn them down in Bio Shock to keep it above 50 fps, but most of the other settings are medium-max. That sort of system(minus the screen) would probably run you about $100 these days.

You certainly get more power/dollar with a desktop, but there are quality laptops out there that will run anything for way less than $1,500.

If you're going to buy one make sure to get all the info you can. RAM clock, CAS latency, make sure they didn't stick a shitty video card in it(there's a 20% benchmark difference between the 6600 and 6800 for example), etc. The companies that hide info like that do it for a reason. They're selling you shit.

I don't know if you have ever played Age of Conan (if you just disregarded reading his post at all, he mentioned it) but the graphics optimization is horrible along with a few other games with great graphics. Crisis is -not- an MMO. Bioshock is -not- an MMO. I am not talking single player games, FPS in single player games means nothing to me. You play Age of Conan and ramp up your graphics with a laptop like that and get 50 FPS and we'll talk my friend.

My point, was that if you want the best, you will have to shell out money for the best. I'm not sitting here talking about barely getting by or just settling for "Meh, it's not bad".

Get the fuck out of Off-Topic, douse yourself with bleach and petrol, then start playing with matches.
