The moment you say "games" is the moment you need a system with a proper video card.

What is your exact price range?

If you can find a system with specifications something like this.

A CPU as close to 3GHz as you can get and a Quad Core CPU preferably by Intel, this is mostly due to AMD having APU systems, meaning there is a video card chip in the CPU, these are not really good for playing video games.

4 to 8GB of System Ram

a dedicated video card with no less than 1GB of system ram.. if you can find a system with at minimum a GT 650M that would be an okay Gaming video card. If you can get one with a GT 660M you would be laughing and very capable of playing video games.

I found this system [link]

The CPU is an i7 2.3GHz quad core.. I think it has turbo of 3.3GHz

You could also look for systems with i5 CPU's

My exact price range is about 500-600 max.

Since you gave me something to look for it should help out. I'm trying to get the best I can for my low budget. I can't really save anymore cash I haven't had a laptop for like almost 3 months it sucks.

As for Dell.. they do make good systems, just not really gaming systems, they are mostly Business systems.. Dell bough Alienware, Alienware is their gaming line of Laptops.

500-600.. mmmm.. that is a very low end system.. It's tough to pick in that price range.

Mmmmmmmm..

Brand Wise, I can vouch for Asus, I have an Asus laptop myself and it is pretty good.

Best of luck with picking.

I wouldn't get anything laptop wise from either acer or toshiba, both have so very up and down ratings on all of their systems. By the way what kind of games are we talking about here?

First if you lenovo look at they're Z series, you going to find a much better deal there. Also look at Dell's laptops they're very good in your price range. On that note your price range for a laptop is pretty limited, especially considering what you're plans to use it are. Laptops are actually going up in price right now, and it's hard to find a good one around 500-600.

not sure what you've heard about Dell exactly. They've got some really solid laptops and great customer support. As for MMOs, well you just need to be sure your computer can handle them. Don't just get something that will run the "minimum requirements"
