For the Price your paying Its quite a good laptop

With a 256mb graphics card it will play a few games.

3gb Ram good, Cpu is a nice speed dual core.

You cant expect much higher for $700

I'd be very ifffy about buying laptops with G8* cores for gpus. nVidia has admitted to a widespread manufacturing fault. I'd stay away whether it's a macbook pro, dell or whatever. As they come out of manufacturers guarantee you will have to fight for recompense with nVidia, good luck with thatWhile they did set aside few hundred million for costs related to this CF, it's pretty hard for individuals to get them to pony up.

Sorry for chain post.. but while digging up those articles, I came across this. http://tinyurl.com/8qsrbc I must say I'm glad I don't hang on to GPUs for more then a year; time to dump your 8800s on trademe before they poop themselves. - OK not really relevant to the thread, but I think interesting nevertheless.
