Best Bagming Notebooks

by johhnndoe / September 18, 2004 5:19 AM PDT

I am looking for a gaming notebook, but don't know what to choose from. What are some of the best gaming notebooks available and what specs would i be looking for in one? Size, weight, or battery life isn't really a factor for me since I will be using it as a desktop replacement.

Since gaming is THE GOAL, then you would look for a ultra high end video card such as part number A0347986 RADEON 9800 PRO 256MB AGP in some Dell XPS Laptop.

That should do it.

I noted the "card" that the XPS can use. It's about the topend today. You can compare such with Alienware, but in short, if Alienware doesn't answer your questions then I would remove them from the contenders list.

Note that you can get a Pentium M (Centrino) notebook with ATI 9700 dedicated video 128mb like the Acer 2025 or Acer Ferrari and have good battery life and portability in addition to gaming performance. The Dell 8600 also has the option to get the ATI 9700 with 128mb dedicated video and the Hitachi 7200rpm hard drive.

If you insist on a heavy 17" Pentium 4M notebook check out zd7000forums.com for the HP or also check out the Toshiba 17"
