Things to Speed a Laptop is First a Faster Hard Drive as they normally fit a 42000 rpm drive you need at least 7200 rpm I fitted on in mine, as I was fedup watching the hard drive light at boot and waiting and waiting. Next you should have minimum of 512mb Memory to speed it up on read writes
in my experiance if you want to do gaming forget a laptop! they almost always come with crap onboard grafics cards to them which in some cases wond even run the original doom games!!!!!! if you insist on a laptop get sumint like a alienware one as they are designed for gaming. for proper gaming get a pc. you can upgrade all aspects of it with minimal fuss where with a laptop if you want a new grafics card your stuffed.
"if you insist on a laptop get sumint like a alienware one as they are designed for gaming."
However posting the most powerful machines isnt always the way to go. Sony, dell, acer and many others all have laptops based around reasonable chipsets that allow you to play most games at very good frame rates for a reasonable price. I paid 640 and got a laptop that plays Half Life2 on average settings.
"you need at least 7200 rpm I fitted on in mine" Again it depends what you really want. I have a 5400rpm drive which is pretty reasonable for Halflife and co.
However you will never get too amazing a look from any game with that laptop. If you are wanting to play games my suggestion is to (if you have had it less than 7 days) is to take it back and see if you can get your money back. If you have had it longer you could sell it and then buy a new machine with a card that will run the games you want to play.
