Gaming laptops cost WAY more than that. You're looking at at least $1000 for a decent one. You could always get ones they have for $500, or so. They just won't last.

Yea, a good gaming laptop is going to run $1000+. The Alienware Area-51 m15x starts at $1299.

iBuyPower has one for $799: Battalion 101 CZ-7 Elite Notebook

Apparently this laptop is able to run Oblivion according to the reviews at their site. I was thinking about getting this laptop to run Oblivion myself. I would like to be able to play Fallout 3 too. I wouldn't have to mind turning the graphics at the lowest possible setting, that;s not an issue with me.

Well, it'd probably play Oblivion if thats all he plays To be honest, that doesn't seem like a bad laptop at all for a budget.
