Dear All Knowing,

I am looking for a laptop that has enough power to watch HD movies and stream them to my HD TV. I would like to stay around $1500 and under if possible. I would also like to do some gaming on it. HDD space isn't really an issue. I plan on haven an external HDD. If anyone has any ideas on a notebook that will perform good HD movies I would love the input.

Thanks for all your time and input!

Stalker out!

Any laptop with a reasonable CPU and then either an HD2600/3600 or GF8600 and above should be able to fit the duties.

Just make sure it has either HDCP equipped DVI or and HDMI connector so you can watch DRM'ed material if you need to.

You can customize a dell inspiron 1720 with a blu-ray drive and the 8600m for ~$1300. An XPS 1530 with blu-ray and an 8600m gt will run you $1600.

Thank you all for your time and wisdom. I appreciate all the good info.

I'm looking at the Acer Aspire 6920. It seems to look great and work good for movies having the fun full hd screen. I was just wondering if anyone has heard of any issues with this machine and if so if you could please humor me in some further explanation of them. I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks again all.
