    Gaming laptop.

    I have a budget of 600$ to buy a gaming laptop and I saw this one on Best Buy:
    Acer Aspire 15.6" Laptop featuring AMD Phenom II Processor N930 (AS5552G-5828) - Brown : 15" Laptops - Best Buy Canada

    Do you guys think its worth it?, I dont know much about graphic cards and stuff.

    That's what I meant, was too lazy to type specific stuff though.

    I don't mean to offend you, but Toshiba and Acer in my opinion are garbage.

    Toshiba and Acer are only Windows PC's I have had success with.

    I have had HP, Dell, and Sony and they were all garbage to me. So now I have a Toshiba laptop, custom built Acer PC (but it's old as fuck), and an iMac 8 gig.

    If need any advice on specific things, ask @Alen. He is pretty much the websites PC guy.

    But what you have seems very nice. Buy me one.

    The words Gaming and laptop are two things that should in no way be linked.

    If your going for gaming, get a desktop. If you want to be mobile, dont play games, or lower the graphics. Believe it or not, any more than 2 GB of RAM and a decent >2.2Ghz dual core is not needed to run games. My friend still plays games on an old single core 2.6, 1Gb of RAM, and a 8600GTS.

    Gaming and Laptop do match. Especially in the last few years considering the Alienware Laptops for an example. Popular Graphic card makers also made cheaper but as well performing graphic cards especially for laptops. And Im planning on playing modern games on medium to high settings, so yes 2 gb's of ram and higher IS required.

    sure, 600$ for the laptop and 3000$ for shipping and handling.
