    There's almost always something better.

    Important to your choice is your use.
    What do you intend to use your laptop for?

    Yeah, it really just depends upon personal use.

    (Ex. I recently purchased a laptop. One laptop had slightly better specs than the one I purchased for similar price. Why did I go for the one with worse specs? Battery life. I'll be using the laptop for college and need a semi-long battery life.)

    Well, your current computer probably could not handle Black Ops on all high. The new computer, I would imagine so.

    Though I'm not sure why you are set on a gaming laptop? Desktops will always beat-out laptops in the gaming realm.

    Yeah, I know. But I still have always found that concept a bit odd. :D

    Plus, the prices, like you touched on, are normally insanely high.

    @ THEShooter93 my computer can't run black ops at all i got it then installed it and it got to the click anyware and my computer frozup and i agree Desktops Rule but i go to a privet school and we can have Desktops but thay are so bulky and i need the portabilty of a laptop.

    @DustJay I Know about all about alienware.

    I'm willing to spend 1,200 on a laptop that will last a good 2-4 mayby 5 years

    If you want it for gaming, why dont you just buy a good video card instead of the whole computer?
