If you guys have any idea where I can find this laptop, PLEASE link me, I want to buy it for my son for Christmas, but I just can't find it anywhere.

Why does it specifically have to be these requirements? Nothing he runs should be that dependent on system specs. Can we know what he's doing with it?

What is your budget, also?

He actually wants to use it for college, but I know hes a pretty big gamer (builds his own desktops and such) and I've been reading up and the HD3200 seems like the best laptop IGP. I went to bestbuy earlier and looked at the asus g60vk, I really wish I could get that for him, but it's just too pricey. It had the gtx260m in it and it was 999. Maybe if you guys could find me one with an 8800m in it? I want him to be able to play some games with it, as hell be away from home and he can't take the Xbox :p  He likes games like fallout 3 and oblivion, and I know he'll have to compromise on the resolutions and settings, but I'm sure he'd be up for it as long as he can play them. My budget is 600.. maybe 650, depending on the deal.

There aren't a with an 8800m? :\ That one with the hd4570 is definitely promising, but If I could get one thats nvidia/intel id pull the trigger.

The 8800M is a high-end card. You won't see that in a notebook that's under $1400. The 4570 is the best you can do with your low budget.
