Ok i know people are going to yell at me for being an idiot or whatever for mentioning the word Alienware but:
I recently ordered an m14x Alienware laptop, and it's pretty good with gaming, though some may argue it's a bt overpriced.
I got on sale though

Gaming...laptop? Why not a desktop, Laptops can and will overheat extremely quickly[/quote]

Some people don't like dragging a whole desktop around to game. xD Though I've seen it happen.

@HopesAnchor: Well some people do it.
But I'm talking about people who go to LAN parties, travel a lot, etc.

I don't recommend laptops for gaming.
But if I was you I will just focus on the Processor and RAM, so look for anything with Intel Core i7 or i5 and keep an eye out for GDDR3 Ram.
Other stuff that, a **basic** gaming laptop should everything else included that is needed.
Also for hard drive space try to look for anything higher than 500GB.

Alienware's on sale right now in preparation for new models, so it is a better deal than usual. That is, if the options you want haven't sold out.
Also, whatever you buy, you'll probably want to buy the RAM and a nice SSD aftermarket.

What size screen are you looking for? Hard drive size? Do you prefer glossy or matte screens? Even more importantly, what do you consider cheap? Your budget will be the limiting factor.
