I'm trying to ge the maximum gaming experience out of a portable netbook just so I have something else to do
to kill time/ have a rest from work while I'm out. I'm not looking to play anything modern as I have a proper gaming PC for that
Was looking at a Samsung NF110 with the 2gb memory upgrade but im not sure it'll work

and apparently there is quite a good community of people that OC the geforce 335M to great effect. just have a google of it and see. it has more shaders than any other in that product line so OC helps it out a lot.

Still great without an OC tho

that lamborghini has the ION 2 graphics that are inferior to ALL of the previous suggestions. And costs way more (except the alienware I suggested, but the performance is not in the same league)

I have the AspireOne 722 and its a great little computer - I can play games like SimCity 4, Command & conquer 4, etc.

Highly recommend the AMD APUs for this application. C-60 is good, the 350 and 450 are even better.
