I currently have a dell inspiron 6400 and i am looking for another one. I am finding that my notebook is quite slow when it comes to online gaming. What do you recommend for a home computer (preferably laptop) ?

if you want to game, i would recommend a pc. also build your own. its way cheaper and the parts last longer. go to a site such as tigerdirect.com or newegg.com and find all your parts there and get whatever you can afford. definately will save a lot of money not having to pay for the labor

hello bradthechamp, actually I'm right now only using a desktop pc, still can't afford to buy one, but If I allready capable to buy one, I will go for acer 4520, it is using a turion x2 based processor, and using a faster vga power than core 2 duo one (intel gma), so besides for using for my works, I still can using for a little games, and also it is allready fill with many many other pheripheralls, like a camera, wifi, bluetooth, card reader, etc.

for online gaimng you should never prefer laptops... one of many reasons is that in every readme file of every game, this says about graphics cards:''laptop chipsets of these products may work, but are not officially supported'' besides... laptops dont look powerful enough to me XD

If you want a new one then look for HP laptops.Consider the lapis whose price is more than 55,000.I am using a lenevo laptop Y500.It is priced at 49,000 ,works very well.Mine is a special piece so you might have to pay more to get the currently available piece but will get a better graphics.
