I think that Toshiba would be what you are looking for, although it says its only a pentium 1, our friend can play a pentium 4 game without upgrading the computer

I think any laptop with video card (ATi or Nvidia) can be good for gaming just try to buy the fastest processor with it.

I have an IBM T41 with ATI Radeon 9000 (which is not a separate videocard), and I am playing sometimes without problems..




I is a kollege stoodent. Bee nice.
