I know a couple people that have acer laptops and they all love them and have had no problems with them, right now you can get some of the best computers for good deals with Acer.

you could try dell.com/outlet they have some good deals but they are all refurbed...

and thanks for the heads up on the 2400xt (I dont know the ATI vid cards very well to be honest)

the 8400 can handle those types of games, but not the best. i have it, and i have the orange box, CSS, a far cry demo, GTA:SA, NFS carbon and all the battlefield games.

i can even play FEAR on med.

its a decent card, but not the best
