    Acer's build quality hasn't been up to par in recent history, this Acer model may be no different in that respect. If build quality's a big factor in your purchase, go with the Vostro since it's well built as a business notebook, because that's what's expected of their build quality in a business setting. The 8400m GS should serve you well for casual gaming as well, and should run games like HL2 or WoW nicely.

    Well Halo 2 is just badly coded, I hear even powerful computers have trouble running it on PC...talk about a bad port.

    Regular Halo2 is for Xbox only, wont run on your PC. He is talking about the Halo2 for Windows Vista,
