Laptop for under $1200

by gtown_bulldogs / July 18, 2009 10:24 AM PDT

Hello. This is my first time posting on Cnet, and as the title states above, I'm looking for the best gaming laptop I can get for the money. The thing is though, I will be taking this laptop to college, and using it to type notes on. So right now, I'm just considering 15inch laptops. I'm honestly looking for something around $999, but for the sake to consider more options, I'll put a max of $1200. Opinions are greatly appreciated! Looking for a push in the right direction. Thanks.
