Suggest a Laptop

Hey Guys,
I want to buy a new laptop. I'll be using it for MBA. My desktop is not very fancy, no graphics card so can't play any of the latest games so I want a Laptop where I can play nice games, watch movies, listen to music so it also needs to have good battery life. Good storage capacity,memory,speed :P I want a good deal something that won't make a big hole in my pocket.
Please suggest something

Thanks,
Chinu

I often suggest that people work out what their budget is and then find a machine to match it.

Other considerations are things like the period of warranty, increasingly many of the big boys offer a two year warranty.

A laptop for gaming will automatically run over $1000. A good laptop that cannot run games (well) will be around $500. If you want cheap, you will have to give up gaming. Here are always cheap offerings of the day: Laptop Deals - Deals2buy.com

Here is a good site that has lots of info about laptop and reviews. Notebookcheck.net. This site is based in Germany however, so some of the laptops mentioned are not available in some countries. The prices are also in Euros so you'll have to convert them.

Those aren't "lite" games, if you're not willing to shell out for non-Intel graphics card then those games will need to be run at low if not minimum settings. Imho you really don't want to buy one of those unless you are honestly willing to put up with half-assed performance.
