    Default need ideas ^_^

    So i had a hand-me down laptop Vaio from like 2000, it's OLD!!! only has 1 gb ram, and vista home
    You can't do ANYTHING like MMOFPS even the lowest spec!!! I tried gunz/ cs1.6/ halo/ crossfire/ soldier front DOES NOT WORK!!! with this laptop

    Just looking for a laptop that can play online at minimum

    laptops requirement:
    -fast enough to play some of these games ONLINE
    -screensize: less than 15 but not too small(10)
    -can do regular stuff (MSword, spreadsheet, ect)
    -$500-$600
    -NO LENOVO
    (they stink! I got ripped once)

    Anyway I looked at some new laptops that were within my budget (max $500, could possible do $600 but no more than that), and wanted to ask for your recommendation as to which one should I go with

    Here are the contestants:

    1. alienware mx11: $599
    2. Asus UL30VT-X1K nNvida 210mb: $500-$550
    (pretty much the same like alienware, but diffrent graphic cards i think, but has more ram than alienware)
    3. asus eee pc 1015N: $500
    (don't like this much because its kinda SMALL)

    4. Dell Vostro 3500 Intel Core i3 (techbargins): $459

    5. Dell Vostro 3300 Intel Core i3

    6. Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-6480

    Or
    Any other suggestions you might like to add

    I think this would not be too good if you want to game. It has Nvidea 210 dicrete graphics but only 1.3Ghz CPU.

    Here is one with a i5 and Nvidea 310 descrete graphics. I do not think the 310 supports DX11 but solid buy for around $700.

    I don't game on high def, the lowest quality will suffice :P just playing really old games like halo 1 /2 or crossfire/ soldier-front/ gunz

    just need a computer that can play those

    here's the requirements for some games
    GUNZ

    Minimum Recommended CPU Pentium III 500MHz Pentium III 800MHz Graphics Card Direct3D 9.0 GeForce4 MX DirectX DirectX 9.0c DirectX 9.0c Memory 256MB 512MB
    Crossfire

    • CPU : Pentium 4 1.5 GH
    • MEMORY : 512 MB
    • VIDEO CARD : GeForce 5600
    • HARDDISK SPACE : 1,2 GB
    • OPERATING SYSTEM : Windows XP Vista
    • DIRECTX VERSION : 9.0c
    • INTERNET CONNECTION : Cable/DSL

    so just wanted to ask if the
    Asus UL30VT-X1K would be able to play low end games online NOT tryin to play Crysis
    or should i go with
    alienware mx11 which has the same processor speed

    here's their spec

    Alienware mx11
    Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300
    2 GB DDR3 SDRAM - 800 MHz
    160 GB - 5400 rpm
    11.6 inch
    1GB nVidia GeForce GT 335M

    Asus UL30VT-X1K
    Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300
    4 GB DDR3 SDRAM - 1066 MHz
    500 GB - Serial ATA-150 - 5400 rpm
    13.3 inch
    NVIDIA GeForce G210M / Intel GMA 4500MHD

    lots of people tell me go alienware, but i don't like dell that much, their support suck, once u buy, they don't pay any attention to you once they get their $$$

    but i see that asus offers more for my buck
