Hi,

My dad is currently working in the usa and is after a laptop. I want him to get one so i can have when i come back but im not sure what is available over in the us plus he can take advantage of the good dollar to pound rate. Im looking for something thats no more than probably $1300 is suitable for gaming. Ive looked at the dell xps m1210 which looks good but any advice?

Cheers

Umm he probably wants a 15.4" screen then, 14" laptops suck for gaming. So I suggest Dell Inspiron 6400, can customize with ATI x1600 graphx and core 2 duo processor . The XPS 1210 is a 12" so the screen sucks for gaming.

Have a look at some of the HP models.

If he can find one, see how much the 9022ea is over there.

We sell one at the staples in the UK i work at, so imagine the US will have one in somewhere. Should be a lot cheaper there too.

Specs are here

Do not get a dell. HPs, Toshibas, Sonys are good, but stay away from Dell and Compaq.

Gaming specs- probably at least 1 GB of RAM at least 100 GB HDD, and probably some sort of upgraded graphics card, but I don't know anything about those.

I would hold off on the Dell laptops for now, especially Inspiron. They had some pretty rough battery issues a few months back, now they are getting sued for defective motherboards.

I would go with Alienware, they've always been fairly solid gaming laptops.
