University Laptop with Extras - Help

Hey guys/gals trying to decide on a laptop to use in University that is stable, can play games like World of Warcraft (but not a desktop replacement) and a company with good customer service.

My currently location is Toronto, ON Canada. So I searched for close dealers and the best one I found was Voodoo in AB Cananda and decided I would look at their stuff, presently I am looking at the following laptop.


4.5 Pounds with battery and drives
12.1" WSXGA+ 1280x768
High Gloss Wide Screen
12 x 8.6 x 1 inches (WxDxH)
talladega BLACK
Tattoo - No Thanks!

Voodoo ENVY Featherweight a:228
AMD Turion 64 MT-30 Processor

Belkin Bluetooth USB Adapter - Network adapter - USB - Bluetooth - Class 2
Internal 56K Fax Modem

Windows XP Professional
FUEL Software Essentials v2.0
1 Year Voodoo ENVY Warranty Policy
ENVY Silver Upgrade Policy

Total Cost: 2319.09

I have researched Voodoo quite a bit and have found that they are a very respectable company, but it seems like I could get the same laptop for alot cheaper, but I just do not know where to source it out from since I just recently entered the mobile area, but have been involved in desktops for a long time.

Key Components:
Turion Processor , MT series
Atleast 1Gb RAM
7200 RPM HD Hopefully

Thank you for the help

    Quite a bit more system for less money.
  2. quick is the turn around for warranty or other problems that the laptop has to be returned to you? Also how long is the warranty.

    Also where can I get the pricing for the smaller laptops on your site I can only find the 15.4 and up.
  3. Warranty is standard 1 year with a 1 year upgrade available for $85. The only real problems I have ever had is with a hard drive (and it's really the only thing with moving parts), so I don't forsee any mojor turn around time. Otherwise it would be shipping back and forth and a couple days tops.

    The smaller one's aren't on hte site yet, but they will be shortly and will be called the Nanobot.
  4. Just one more question..where are you located?
  5. WORLD headquarters are in Appleton, WI with a branch in Chicago, and a distibutor in Australia.
