Need Help with Laptop Selection

Hi all!

I am looking for a relatively inexpensive laptop platform for the video game FFXI only. I only play FFXI, no crysis or anything high end, hell I don't even care if FFXI is in its lowest settings, I just want to be able to get ~30 FPS average.

I know toms forums rarely recommend buying from a vendor, but as far as I can tell vendors seem to be cheaper in the scene of laptop computing.

I was wondering if anyone could help me find a capable laptop, i.e. low end Dell XPS or something. I am looking at the vendor sites, but I'm not really familiar with laptops.

Fill out the sticky Maziar posted at the top of this section. It really helps with this kind of thing

No, that's pretty much enough info for me. . . Final Fantasy 11 has fairly low system requirements compared to many modern games.

The newer onbaord solutions from Intel (GM45 / GS45) AMD (M780) or nVIDIA (9100M) should work perfectly (I prefer the AMD one).

Any discrete solution (GeForce 6 / ATI 9xxx or better) will obviously work, as well.
