thanks for the response rolli.
mostly after driving games, I want to get a decent wheel and build a racing cockpit. I also need a laptop for other things. I would just use my xbox but they don't have a decent wheel.
I'm looking at titles like need for speed shift and hot pursuit, and dirt 2. The "live chat" people at toshiba say that they will work fine, but I trust you guys more
forgot to mention I was looking at the toshiba qosmios (the low end one) or a dell xps with dedicated graphics
