    Default new laptop opinion needed..

    hello people I want to buy a laptop on prices $1.5k below for playing games ... screen size really isn't a problem here, I'll be happy with either a 15" or 17", but i would like to be able to buy it on a payment plan don't get me wrong I got the cash but I don't want to dish out the 1.5k at once.

    these are my favorite finds so far ...

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218043606827 (I love the price and the NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS 1gb memory that comes with it plus the 4gbs ram, price $1,149.99)

    sager NP5793 (has a $700 instant save rigth now and has also 4gb ram and a Nvidia GeForce 9800M GTS Graphics with 1GB DDR3 price is about $1.2k)

    alienware area51 m15x (this baby looks hot but the video card only has 512mbs of memory and is super espensive when u add the 4gbs of ram, it can be upgrade with a 512MB NVIDIA Quadro FX 3600M but for over $500 ...) price I say about 1.4k (without the nvidia quadro)

    ok, I have both a payment plan for bestbuy and alienware I also have the cash for the sager but i still not sure which to get pls help me decide : /

    If you want a good laptop for under 1.5k, you should definitely take a look at HP.com where there's a always a coupon plus other rebates.

    Forum members are reminded that it is inadvisable to download and use suspicious software (especially registry editors from people in India).
