  1. been looking at ACER they have some around that price saying htey are gaming laptops
    500$ just get 50$ more
    not the best laptop but it can handle strategy games @ lowest setting

    there is a mail in rebate
    so it is 450$ now :P xD
  3. I'd call $600 the 'starting point" if you had an OS

    bumping RAM to 4 GB, adding WiFi and a 7200 rpm HD gets you to $700. i wouldn't bother any lower.
  4. If you want a laptop that can play current games (with decent-good detail), then $1100 is about the starting point. HOWEVER, if you are talking about playing older games like Warcraft, CSS, HL2, then most current gen laptops in the $450-600 range will do.

    $450? Not going to happen my friend.

    As a web and word document laptop, $450 is fine but not for gaming laptop unless you're going to get it used. Your going to need like $600+ to have a laptop with dedicated graphics and a cpu powerful enough to run it.

    For $623 i would recommend this:

    Laptop Summary:

    Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6600 (2.20GHz, 2MB L2, 800MHz FSB)
    Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 32-bit
    Fusion Finish™ with Breeze Pattern in Graphite Gray with Silver Keyboard
    Microsoft® Office Ready with Microsoft Office Professional 2007 60-day Trial Edition
    No Modem
    2GB DDR2 memory (2048MBx1)
    ATI MOBILITY RADEON™ H4570 with 512MB DDR3 discrete graphics
    160GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial-ATA)
    DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) drive
    Realtek® 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN
    Lithium Ion battery (6-Cell, 4000mAh)
    1 Year Standard Limited Warranty
    Laptop Price as Configured: $623.00
    Accessories Total: $0.00
    Your Total: $623.00

    This will run most games (i think) at moderate resolutions and settings.

    Well that clears a lot of thing up! without knowing the currency or country we normally have to guess the US.
    With that all cleared up, i have found a laptop that's £50 over your asking price but it the cheapest laptop that can handle game decently.
    if i find any more laptops i'll let you know.
