  1. That is out of my price range at the moment. Love it though...
  2. Best I have found so far:
    TOSHIBA Satellite T115D-S1125
  3. That is going to barely be at the minimum specs or maybe not even that. The ATi 3200 is a 128MB - 828MB of shared memory card. That being said it is not up to the 3850 ATi minimum requirement. The CPU doesn't meet the minimum for AMD either.
  4. any other suggestions that are under price range that are closer?
  5. Other thought was the Eee PC 1201N
  6. the eeeePC has built in gpu, not going to cut it to play the games you listed.


    is the next closest thing that has even close to the specs you are looking for and it is 100 dollars over budget
  7. What about the New EEE 1201PN? I havent seen that many reviews on it yet...
