im supposed to tell my brother what laptop to buy. this is generally what im looking for, price range of 650 dollars or less (unless its a really, really good deal) one of those dual core i5s, 2.1GHz or more A video card with at least 512MB, 128 bit, playing basic games like WoW and maybe call of duty, nothing like crysis (yet) something better would be great tho 4GB of ram, obviously. i think DDR3 is becomming the craze, i havent brushed up on that so im not sure. a bigger screen rather than a smaller one, 15.6" seems good to me. Im usually good at this stuff, but i want to get him the best possible one for the best possible price. i usually prefer Acer or gateway, but the tech is getting so much better faster and i just cant keep up with it. please, please, dont recommend me an HP. im sorry if you think they are the sh*t, i hate them. so please, just skip over HP... thanks alot for helping!
