Gateway's budget-minded 17-inch gaming laptops have impressed, offering a mix of decent components and high-end video cards for around $1,200. While the now discontinued P-7811 FX is still hunted for on message boards and eBay, Gateway now has a mostly worthy replacement, the P-7805u FX (part of our Winter 2009 Retail Laptop Review Roundup ).
