    I use a Dell Inspiron 17R with an i5 and Intel HD Graphics 3000. I can run most games at 720p on low. It's not ideal, but it gets me by until I can afford to get a gaming rig together.

    I used to, but I stopped now. I only had one laptop back then, and I think it broke down. Not sure if it's working right now either, but I haven't checked on that. There are some pretty nice gaming laptops out there meant for gaming, so I'd check those out if I wanna go for a gaming laptop.

    Laptops can't handle too much gaming. They're still small packages. No matter how jacked the specs make them out to be.

    My system isn't the best, so I stick to emulation mostly. I've tried out a few popular games that were on sale and there's a bit of a lag. Its also outdated so I can't bump up the ram. I think im going for a gaming system next time I buy one, which should be really soon.

    Gaming Laptops are more expensive than Gaming PC's! Good luck!

    Yeah I know but I think it's time I just put out the cash for what I want. I'm on my laptop all the time and I don't have a portable gaming device except for my phone, so I would like to be able to game on the go when I'm not near my console.

    Well shop around, don't let anybody bully or trick you into a sale. If you're gonna pay high........ make sure you get EVERYTHING in the realm of extras and add-ons you can with your original purchase.

    I have never found expensive gaming rigs as being appealing to me. I would rather get a high end laptop for convenience and portability over power and stability. graphics have never been a deciding factor for me as i try to judge a game on gameplay rather than graphical value

    Although that computers with no doubt have a way better display resolution, I think that a lot of people use laptops for gaming too, and I'm one of them. I bought a great graphics adapter that was very expensive though, but I'm proud of myself that most of the games I play are working perfectly even better than on a computer.

    Laptops are real bad. I'd rather have a PC inside a bitfenix pandora or some other mini atx case with a monitor if I want portability. Otherwise I'm using my Vita/3DS.

    I also use a laptop for gaming, HP Pavilion g series dual core and AMD RADEON graphics. Really good but it gets hot when gaming.

    I used to use two laptops for gaming, but currently I'm just using one, but that's just because I don't really have time for gaming nowadays, now that we are having some free time for Christmas I might get into gaming more again, but still will be using only one laptop.

    This is true and I really wish laptops would get cheaper already. I'm hoping that in a year or two it would at least be more plausible to game on a laptop more cheaply because it's much better to be able to bring your games along with you.

    I have a Macbook Pro and goes heat up but It keeps on playing with no problem. I produce music so my macbook is on about 16 hours a day. I haven't had any problems with it.

    Laptop gaming is much more fun than it use to be. I remember when the laptops failed in having the right specs, unless you paid a bunch of money.

    I think the cost is to high for a laptop that you could play your games on-and out of the price range for most people. The laptop is not made for heavy uses of the hardware anyway-and over time it will start crashing and overheating as well. If you game on a laptop though-I would keep it to some light gaming overall and all should be just fine.
