Doesn't exist. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a good laptop period at that price. It'll be some bulky 15.6" thing with no battery life.

Well, the ATI equipped ones I can attest to that being true [sig]. I wouldn't say the same for the ones with the GTX 460m.

Although I wouldn't sell mine for $500. I'd say maybe $600, but I plan on keeping mine even after I get it's replacement and using as a general purpose desktop with my 2048x1152 monitor for as long as it lasts.

It's surprisingly hard to recommend something which doesn't exist.












Maybe there's a bible verse about gaming laptops

Double your budget and you would be on the lowest end of gaming laptops. Decent ones that won't be obsolete in about a year are $1300.00 and up.
