Gateway P-7811FX

Features a high-end Centrino 2 CPU and Nvidia GeForce 9800 graphics card for an incredibly reasonable price; higher screen resolution than previous models; 4GB of RAM and 64-bit OS.

The bad:
Lacks a few basic amenities, such as Bluetooth and a fingerprint reader; 200GB hard drive is merely average.

The bottom line:
We don't know how Gateway makes money selling these things, but the combination of high-end components and low price makes the 17-inch Gateway P-7811FX the best mobile gaming deal going right now.

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo (2.26 GHz); RAM installed: 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM; Weight: 9.3 lbs
