What kind of games do you want to play? Cause they arn't good enough if you want to play good detailed games such as Crysis 2...


You're looking to spend at least 800 pound on a gaming laptop or just a bit less than that.

The best anti-virus out there atm I would say is ESET NOD32.

✔ Best Answer
There's no need to pay for AV protection. The top three freebies are AVG Free, AVAST Free, & Microsoft Security Essentials. I prefer MSE, but a lot of the helpers have been recommending AVAST. I haven't used AVG in a while but judging by the download size, it seems it's becoming bloated. They're all available here: Anti-Virus Downloads

All of the laptops you mentioned are old. When it comes to gaming, you need a decent CPU & plenty of RAM, but the graphics are most important. We would have to know the exact specs (CPU, RAM, graphics) to be able to help make the best choice. These are all XP machines though, I don't recommend Win7 for any of them unless you can bump up the RAM amount to at least 2GB.

You're not gonna find anything decent for under $150, especially not a gaming laptop.

As far as I'm concerend, you only mentioned 3. IMO, the iBook shouldn't even be a consideration. And of the other 3, you haven't provided any info other than model numbers. I posted links to reviews in response # 3, but I have no idea if the laptops you're asking about have the same hardware configurations. Post the specs for each laptop - make/model/speed of CPU, amount/speed of RAM, make/model of graphics, size/speed of hard drive, version of Windows.

You didn't post the graphics cards. If the ThinkPads both use Intel graphics, they'll suck for gaming, but the T43 will suck slightly less. The processor is a little better, and the faster FSB will slightly boost the IGP's performance.

As for the iBook...let's just say that my 13 year old retro gaming box would kick its ass.
