I'm looking at the newer 64-bit capable laptops which may be fine for most games since they use a video display system that doesn't share RAM with the CPU.
HP, Gateway and others offer this now.
In closing, laptops don't perform as well as same priced desktops, so be sure you know this going into this decision.
I can spend between probably $1000-$1500. What kind would you suggest that I should get?
