Laptop HELP

by grammagrace / May 13, 2006 1:48 AM PDT

Hello, and thanks for reading my post.

I am looking for a good gaming laptop. But I am one for looks too. I am not a fan of box laptops.
What I am looking for:
1. Good Looks. I do not want a box laptop. I like it to have a design, and to look very cool.

2. Gaming Laptop. I do not need an uber gaming laptop. Just one that could run games well, without skipping or 5 minute loading times.

3. Parts. I want at least a 2 GHz Processor, at least 512 mb ram-- and upgradable, and a GOOD video card.

I was looking at the Vigor Gaming Ares laptop at
in that same color.

I was also looking at the new Acer Ferrari laptop, but it had so-so reviews from CNet.

Just as an idea of the type i am looking for. I am one for flashy, stylish laptops.

Oh and i almost forgot. I want a laptop because i go overseas every summer, and it is important to have a computer that i can transport there and back.

Thank you.
Please, I am open to all opinions.

Have you heard how much those custom cars cost?

The fact you don't want a boxed laptop means you are willing to deal with higher costs, more maintenance than the rest of us. Here I might look at the new Dell, Toshiba gaming laptops and you want looks and won't care about having to send it back for service now and then.

Cars work about the same. Custom jobs always seem to break down sooner and need more care.

At least you know what you are in for.

i'm not sure if u've noticed....but alienwares are not known for being portable and sexy. A lot of my friends have them...they're actually massive...and if you look closely...not very sleek or shiny..
PS: they cost a lot too
