Hey guys, I’m looking for a good 15’ laptop to replace my 17’ that just died. I’ve got a few things I’m looking fore that are important:

1 Good customer service, this means no HP. I had nothing but trouble with the hp that I’m trying to replace.
2 I’d like to be able to run games like fear and far cry on it. It doesn’t have to be a power house, that’s why I have a desktop but being able to game a little on trips would be nice.
3 I’d like to keep it about 6.5 lbs and under $1,800

I’ve been looking at the Dell Vostro 1500, and it looks like it has all the stuff that I want but I’ve heard it’s really heavy. Anyone have any better ideas? Thanks!
-Eric

Most of them in your range will be heavy. Light costs money.

For light go with the IBM T61 or Apple PowerBook , bu for inexpensive performance, the DELL is a good reference point, especially when using discount coupons.
