I build my own desktop systems, but know absolutely nothing about notebooks. I bought a Dell XPS M140 thinking it would be adaquate for my needs.. but I was wrong. I installed Call of Duty 2 on it but I get a direct x error. After doing some research and talking with dell, it seems that the crappy onboard video card isnt supported. I would like to get a notebook that can handle Call of Duty 2, has an AMD 64 bit processor, decent battery life, decent video card that is supported by call of duty 2 / direct x 9, and is future upgradable. ie: video card, CPU, and possibly motherboard. From what I have read, laptops are pretty much built and you cant do anything to them except replace a hard drive and add more ram. I would like to get one that I can upgrade when it becomes obsolete.
I have surfed newegg for their laptops and i found a few decent ones, but they all had Intel CPUs (death to Intel!) My price limit is about $2,500.
If you guys could give me some advice on where I can find a laptop that would fit these needs I would greatly appreciate it.
