Hey guys. I'm looking to get a new laptop. Being a college student, I'll be using it at class and inbetween classes (As my classes are spread out so I have wait time). I'll be using it for word processing and programming projects for class. But on the other side, I'll be using it for general usage and I'd like to play a couple games on it and such.

The main game I'm looking interested and wanting to play is ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead but I don't know how well I could get that running on a Laptop and if it'd be affordable.

I'd prefer a Windows OS, preferbly Win 7 but I wouldn't mind Win 8.

So I was wondering, do you guys have any suggestions about getting a laptop, and any ideas what might I be able to do/play on the laptop, specifications, extra info etc etc.

I have a budget of about $800, maybe a little more. I'd like to do some research before I go out and buy something.

I'm not all concerned about how high I can get the settings, but I'd prefer to be able to get Medium-ish and playable for ArmA II

It'll be mostly for gaming/youtube and my school work on the side.

I'll probably be buying it sometime soon, within the next week or 2.

What laptops would you guys recommend?
