Exclamation Need Help Buying Laptop!

Hey all, I'm new to the forum, but I need some help.

I need laptop for college, and there are a some requirements that must be met:
-Screen around 15" to 16"
-OS must be Windows Vista
-Decent processor speed (2.0 ghz or higher, preferably Intel Core 2 Duo)
-4 GB DDR3 RAM (or lower/higher, I can can always buy more but must be DDR3)
-Video Card capable of running Fallout 3 at recommended settings (preferably a Nvidia card with Hybridpower [Switch between dedicated and integrated graphics as need be])
-250+ GB Hard Drive
-DVD +/- R/RW Burner (Blu-Ray if possible)
-3 year Warranty with Accidental Damage Policy (larger warranty is okay)
-Price around $1500

Is this even possible?

Yeah, I'd say it's all possible, excluding your Blu-ray requirement.

HP EliteBook 8530w

HP EliteBook 8530p

Dell XPS M1530

Lenovo Elite ThinkPad T500


I tend to favor business notebooks because of their industrial strength and reliability.

I'm sure it is, let me take a look around. But why DDR3 RAM? That's pretty powerful stuff and will be overkill to run with a mobile C2D.

MSI GT627

It probably runs PC2-5300 (DDR2-667) or PC2-6400 (DDR2-800). But it has a 9800m in it. Pretty good.

Gateway GT627

Why did you list Gateway?

You're intending to post a link to the MSI notebook, correct?
