    Hi guys. I'm looking to buy a laptop that would come in handy for schoolwork and documents, spreadsheets, presentations, as well as personal use. For my iPod, pictures and gaming (MW, MW2, BFBC[2]). What's a durable, cheap, and fast (2GB ram enough?) computer that can do all of the above? I was going to get a PS3, but then I remembered PC gaming.

    Uhhh if you want to run BF: BC2 you can not buy a laptop under $1000.

    To play MW2, you can pay $700-800 and run it at all max.

    I recommend buying a cheap laptop and a PS3 just to SAVE MONEY,

    200-300 dollars is my budget.

    Is playing mw2 at lowest settings really bad quality? it doesn't have to be amazing, i just want it to be playable without caring about much quality.

    Uhh if your budget is that low, all you could really get is a netbook. And on those integrated cards, you will have difficulty running it on all low settings. And you would have to turn the resolution down, making everything look blurry and pixelated.

    In this case I would go with the PS3.

    You won't be able to play any games smoothly with $200-$300...you're going to need at least $600-$800 if you plan to game at all. Netbooks are made for simple tasks, like web browsing and emailing.

    300... Buy your self a netbook with that money. No laptop is that cheap to run all of that games. If there was I would buy my self 3 of those Notebook.

    Just buy the ps3 and save for the good laptop.

    I'm basically going to the same as those above me. You can't get any decent laptop at isn't a net book for that budget. And net books suck for gaming. Ignore what anybody says about good net book gaming. Its bull sh*t. Buy a ps3 then save up for a decent laptop. Thats your best option!
