You aren't going to get much for $500.

What type of games? You might be able to play like old stuff, but nothing too new.

Why a laptop though?

I could put together a very good gaming desktop for $500, but as far as laptops go, there pretty much is no such thing as a gaming laptop for that price. It will be a standard laptop with crappy graphics.

$1000 MINIMUM for non-POS graphics in a laptop.

Try it.

Tell him anything for $500 won't get good framerates in CoD no matter what. $500 is entry level for a laptop.

I got a pretty decent notebook on sale for $500, it plays L4D on low settings... L4D isn't terribly graphics intensive as newer games and it still lags on my notebook... He will regret paying only $500 for a notebook for gaming. Tell him to save more money and decide on a desktop.

I think this is about the best you'll get...there's probably a couple that are better by not by much:

Pretty terrible, honestly.

I found you one for $589 Refurbished

http://www.buy.com/listing/sellerlis...11201507&buy=1

It has a 9800M GS and that card gets 47fps on high on CODMW1 and 28fps on crysis on high. Pretty badarse deal, i'd jump on it if I had the money myself.

Review for the laptop: http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/asus...-33496181.html
