Help me choose a laptop +NSFW
 
I have had a desktop from Wal-Mart for three years, and now that I have some money to spend, I feel it would be wise to spend on a laptop for college and a certain onlien game. I'll be willing to spend anywhere up to 1200 or so, but if I could get what I want for less, I would appreciate it.

The things I want to be able to run are:

Microsoft Word
Instant Message
Music (ITunes or whatever)
Online P*ker with minimal overlap for four tabling
Wireless Internet capabilities

Also, I would appreciate any advice on what sort of anti-virus protection to get.

Sorry if this sounds incredibly n00bish, which I'm sure it does, but I would appreciate any help I can get.

Oh yea, we haven't had Elisha on here for a while

wait till dell has 750 off 1500, and get a 700M. small, cheap, does everything YOU need.

check www.slickdeals.net or www.gotapex.com for deals.

ty for the help, i appreciate it, but if you could explain what 7500 for 1500 is, and the min resolution to 4 table I'd appreciate it a lot

Someone just explained this to me, so figure I'd pass along my new knowledge.

The minimum resolution you can have for 4-tabling is 1600x1200, because each poker table is 800x600 pixels. Anything less than that will have at least some overlap.

Good luck with your purchase. I'm in the market for a new laptop myself.
