    I'm currently using the Acer 3820TG (13.3 inch) with a i5-480m with the AMD Radeon HD 6550M. But its gettin rather hot while playing the games (died on me while playing the diablo3 beta). too bad acer's no longer producing the 3820tg

    Thanks for the thread though. I'm waiting for a perfect laptop that would replace my 3820TG. Are the laptops noted above using Ivy Bridge?

    you know i would be willing to consider 15" as long as they fall in a thin and light category and have high rez screen + decent GPU... no point in getting a 15" with low rez screen though even if it is really thin and light, we got plenty of 14" for that.

    old ish, but if you like Toshiba, I think this would be a good choice.

    thanks but that is an entry range gpu, the hd 4000 should have the same amount of power

    another thing, I have 2 more reserved posts, what do you guys think I should put there? Performance notes for those gpus? battery life figures?
