    Im looking to buy a new laptop. I'm just wondering what is the best bang for my buck? I've heard that Alienware and Dell laptops are really not all that great. I do a lot of gaming (BF2, wc3, CS, other random games) and will also be doing a lot of school work / college type stuff. Whats the best company to go through with laptops?

    Apple, Lenovo and ASUS are the manufacturers that seem to get reccomended alot these days.

    Something like this may be ideal for your needs.

    hmm it looks nice. how would that video card compare to my 9800 pro in my PC? I have no idea how the new processors and video cards compare to what i bought about 4 years ago.

    Im running a p4 3.0ghz, and a 128mb 9800 pro vid card, and 1 gig ram

    Well the processor is way better. The graphics card is moderatly better and as far as graphics cards in laptops go it's one of the better offerings that you will find as a stock item from manufacturers. It should play those games you listed fine, better than your PC. Infact game slike F.E.A.R and Oblivion should be perfectly playable on it.

    Tom's hardware have a selectable comparison chart.

    http://www23.tomshardware.com/cpu.html

    I selected the two closest processors to what I assume you have and what's closest to the processor in that laptop as Tom's hardware don't include mobile processors on that list.

    The only problem with playing games on a lappy is that the hard drives are generally slow leading to loading time issues or so I have heard.

    Not so much anymore. Most laptops are coming with at least a 5400RPM hard drive, and many allow a 7200RPM drive as an option.
