Default 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.

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.
