Hey Guys, I have been thinking about getting a laptop for my new business but being a gamer, I have been trying to figure out if I should replace my desktop completely or what!! Ofcourse I will keep the one I already have! Went to the Dell website and sorta liked this but wanted your input on whether this will be good for some gaming or not? I mostly play CounterStrike, COD MW2 etc...

Its a nice laptop but you can get better ones in this 1500$ range, like asus G73 with much better gtx460 or hd5870

I agree with raza. I think you could get more in terms or graphics power for the kind of cash you want to spend.
