Normally, I'm partial to Toshiba. However, their gaming machines don't have enough robustness for hardcore gamers.
Toshiba is supposed to make a good notebook. You should consider them.
I am actually looking for a amdathlon 64 notebook. 64 system
After this notebook, i am not planning on another computer until about 5 years?
Depending on the type of gaming, you might need to replace the graphics cards every year, or two, or three. Notebooks don't typically allow a luxury such as that.
I'd have to say every year to 2 is more like it. The laptop I have will play Battlefield, but I don't think it will play the newer games (HL2). My son was really looking forward to a desktop when we decided to build him one.
5 years is a really long time, especially for a notebook. As SC points out, you will probably have to replace your vid card, which may not be easy nor cheap. You may want to pick a model, then do a search for a notebook graphics card. Taking apart a laptop is not hard as long as you have the repair manual. Compaq gives these if you ask for one.
May I ask why your needing a notebook? Perhaps a small form pc instead?
