I was planning on buying a notebook which would fulfill my gaming requirments as well as the fact that I would not have to atleast replace it for an year or so... Now I checked out the price tag and with the highest spec i can get my hands on it for $2890.. Now if there was someone who could actually guide me whether I should go for some other laptop of a different band which would stand equal to Dell's XPS gen 2 but at a lower price, if not equal it should atleast go hand to hand with it. Can anyone please recommend me a a less expensive and better option. Thanks....

I Will go with the HP ZD8000 series 'cause it's cheaper and seems like a powerfull laptop, the only thing that i don't like is the ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) X600
I Will always chose the NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 6800 Ultra over the mobility
but the Dell is too expensive I think.

I go with the Dell XPS Gen2 with the 40% coupon or the $750 off.

40% off $1299 on Select Inspiron Notebooks, limit 3000 uses
Coupon code ZQP5550$7LKH48
Coupon expires 2005-09-07 5:59am CST

I only found teh 40% off one but it should work with the Dell XPS Gen2. You should save alot of money with this.
