Default I need help

Ok, Im trying to get a really good gaming laptop. Im leaning towards AlienWare right now. Any ideas on fast computers with good graphics that can support Battlefield 2 and not to mention cheap? :x

Right now, im thinking of This and This
Help me out please, im a n00b when it comes to computers. :/
Mods, if you think this is too n00bish then you can lock it.

If you're able, get the first one. It has better specs and will perform better.

Well if you want freakin Alienware, you should expect to have to shell out a ton of cash. Hell, I haven't seen a model that cheap, they're usually $2500 and up.


Looks like a bargain to me, but you might do better with a PS3 running Linux.

I didn't say it had to be AlienWare. :P

AlienWare aren't the best for laptops. If you could get an ASUS laptop with a nice Turion processor and GeForce in it (The higher the number the better. :P) you might have better value for your money.

Laptops shouldn't be for gaming in my opinion. If you want a gaming machine you'd be better off going with a PC.

Definitely agree with that. Laptops are more difficult to upgrade hardware, making them poor choices as a primary gaming tool.

Cheap? Primary gaming pc/laptops are typically more expensive. So if you really want to play games and on a good system, you're going to have to pay the extra money.

I think that Laptops are just a preference for people that want to play something awesome, but they can't carry the PC with them.

I prefer gaming consoles, but if you want to play a good RTS or shooter, a gaming PC/Laptop is the way to go.

I dunno, I've seen some pretty spiffy gaming systems on eBay for under $1000. Heck, if you're willing (and have the know-how) you could buy the motherboard, CPU, RAM and video card for around $500 (Provided you already have a PSU, case and harddisk).
