Looks to be a decent lappy. It has a good CPU, plenty of memory and a large hard drive. The graphics system is a bit weak, but if your not a gamer of any sorts, it should work well for you.

I actually plan on playing Diablo 3 when that comes out. The only other choice for graphics card is

512MB NVIDIA GeForce G 105M +$150.00

and its 150 more. Is it worth getting it?

Wow, neither of those graphics choices are very good. If what I have read about D3 are correct, it should run fine on a lower end system.

Where are you considering getting this laptop? I've seen better units with larger 17" screens going for that much.

They are about the same performance wise with the only real difference in the gateway's larger screen and lower price.

Here's a nice one with a decent graphics solution: HP - Pavilion Laptop with AMD Turion™ X2 RM-72 Dual-Core.

If you had around $700. What would the best laptop you would buy?

I will use it to watch movies (I have a 17 monitor I could hook up and then through HDMI a large flatscreen tv.)

I will play a few games not many though.

Needs a large hard drive and a fast processor.

Is that the one you would get? Or what about

I like the second one of your three choices. It has a larger screen and better graphics. Speed wise, the CPUs are very comparable.
