im looking for a general use laptop, which can play decent games; and i need some help.
I spotted an acer aspire 6930G which seemed alright but im not sure if there is anything of better value.
Any help would be lovely :)

The things you need to consider if you are going to play games on the machine are the
1..processor
2..hard drive size
3..it has its own graphics card
4..and is wireless (usually laptops are)

A good processor is usually needed for playing todays games and you will really need a seperate graphics card rather than use the processor time.
Hope this helps you.

lookout for shared memory between the gfx card and system. Each should have its own.
