Default My laptop

OK, here's another laptop I'm thinking of getting (there's so many choices it ain't true!) How does this look to you:

Win XP Pro
Intel Centrino Pentium M 770 @ 2.13Ghz
1GB DDR2 RAM @ 533Mhz
100GB 5400rpm HDD
15.4" WXGA @ 1280x800
nVidia 6600 Go PCI-e 128Mb
Audigy 2 ZS Notebook soundcard

Anyway, how does this look, and how will it do for gaming?
What's the difference between the 6600 and the 6600GT, and does it matter much?

The most intense game to run on it will be BF2, and I can run that on my 3.2Ghz P4 512Mb RAM and GeForce FX5200 256Mb desktop with it not being desperately bad, so surely it'll be fine on this lappy?

I'm also hoping to run Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, possibly FarCry, maybe HL2/UT2K4, I'm sure it'll all run fine on this badboy?

Yes, that laptop looks really good. You should have no problems with current software. I'm guessing that will cost you around $1800?
