    I want to buy a laptop for gaming, and I have a budget of around 1000 or 1100 dollars. I was looking at one laptop in particular. Here are the specs.:

    Asus X83Vm-X1
    2.26 Ghz dual core processor Pentium
    4GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS with 1GB of dedicated GDDR3
    320 GB hard drive @ 5400 rpm
    14.1" screen
    $1050

    Is this a good option for playing games like Crysis and GRID or is there a better choice for under $1100?

    It is not a "good" option for playing those, but a great deal being a laptop, for gaming purposes. It will run those games at decent settings pretty smoothly. I would say you won't find a new, non-refurbished laptop better than that for less than 1100 $.

    How about a used or re-furbished laptop? Is there a good used laptop that will meet these price requirements?

    I can't find any. You would need to go through so many websites to find a really good deal, I'd lose my head attempting to. I don't even know where to start, so... It's up to someone else to do so... (you? :p)
