Gaming laptop for CS:S under 500?

Topic says it all really. I've gone without a laptop forever. Now everyone in the family has one so I'm thinking of getting one for the wife....and by default myself

I'm thinking of spending around 500 on a 15" screen laptop, brand doesn't matter. And I figure it might as well be capable of running CS:S at 1440x900. Is there anything that can handle it at that resolution for 500 or near?

I'd imagine anything can run CS:S nowadays.

Would be ideal if it could run it WELL though, I'm talking 60+ FPS

CSS was always processor-bound. You shouldn't have a problem. Stick steam and css on a memory stick and run around currys trying them out.

Well I'm glancing at the i5-2430M which seems to be a good balance of speed + value. The HD3000 graphics seem to run CS:S OK; http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-H...0.37948.0.html

As for trying out USB sticks, you've obviously never met the PC World/Currys nerks down in Cornwall. They think you can get a virus on their display models just by waving a floppy disk at them....

Got this in the end: http://www.comet.co.uk/p/Laptops/buy...-Laptop/769428

The HD3000 chip seems OK, I tried it out first on CS:S with an i5-2430M which is basically the same performance. I could have spent another 100 to get the same laptop with an Nvidia chip but to be honest I'd rather have the 100!

I think one of the dell inspirons would be your best bet kev..should cost you around 350-600 with an i5...css could probably run at around120 fps with a decent cfg file
