Look at black widow's laptops. Look at HP's laptops. It doesn't need to say "HURR GAMING LAPTOP ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG 1337!!!!!!Shfot+one!" for it to be good. Dell computers, I'd avoid like the plague. Then again, I don't put that much effort into avoiding the plague...

I'd say HP. Reliable. HP's computers have never been an annoyance to me, unlike Dells, Compaqs, Toshibas, Macs, or Sonys.

:moved: to Tech Discussion.

I myself use a ASUS Z9200K right now. Never had any trouble in almost 2 years now. It can run games, any application and its a great dedicated server when I'm at home :p. Only downside I can find is the 80GB hd.

I have a Dell Inspiron 2200, and while not a Gaming Computer in the sense, I am able to play many games on it just fine. I have never had a single problem with it (Though I have dropped it twice on accident, luckily both times it landed on my bed and my pillows.) I would recommend the XPS as a gaming laptop, but I would avoid their Desktops. Several of my friends are constantly complaining about the amount of issues they have had with their Dell Desktops. Gateway is another good company. Alienware, get the Area51M's latest incarnation. The thing about Alienware is that they are really expensive. You could always try building your own too. You can buy Laptop Chassis and MB/Processor combos at places like Fry's Electronics, as well as all the other parts you'd need.

If you're based in the UK then you might want to consider rock. They're a gaming notebook specialist company, and a bloody good one at that.

I'm after a quasi-gaming laptop as well, however since my budget is fairly modest I'm looking into an ASUS A6 series.

I hate to be the anti-secular opinion here, but in my past experiences Dell has never had any problems. I don't know about the rest of the world, but here in the NW US we pride ourselves in the amount of Dell laptops and PCs that are shipped here. Honestly, almost everyone I know with an OEM has a Dell, and they're usually top-notch quality. I haven't seen anything wrong with the hardware it's self, it's all OEM anyways. Their support, is without a doubt, the reign over all traits. You can get just about any answer out of them, without having to pay a good $200 service fee.

When it comes down to it, though - it depends if your a fanatic or an average gamer. In either case, there are many respectable companies who are willing to put forth good performance.

All that I, personally, would recommend is: Acer Dell Alienware Compaq [Shocking - but better then HP] and of course, Asus

I don't have any sources for my choices, they're just my two scents. I personally hate laptops, but then again... anyways; just have fun finding the right one. You usually get a 30-day return policy, so if you don't like it, you have other choices.

If you want a gaming laptop then forget it - buy a cheap laptop and build a gaming desktop. Unless you have a lot of money to spend and don't mind wasting it.
