    I play daily on my Dell Inspiron 5150 w/ Geforce Fx5200 32mb. Screen Res 1024x768, all texture compression on high and it still is a bit laggy. The waterfall in front of Cloister of Storms pretty much crashes my computer.

    Hopefully this beast doesn't crap out on me, I passed on the extended warranty because i am cheap.

    that is my estimated threshold of what amount i ask for before my dad will either laugh at me or try to make some gay bargain where he only pays for half

    I like Alienware's laptop because you can change the graphics card.
    ABS labtops seem pretty nice as well.
    Hmmmm under 1500.... you can get a nice Powerbook?
    LOL j/k j/k!

    Laptops are iffy for FFXI. Mine can play it quite well, but every few months its back in the shop because FFXI rapes it \(^_^)/

    dude, monkeys only weigh like 30 pounds or something. gorillas don't even weigh 500 pounds.

    stupid europeans should stick to your KEELOZ because our system is obviously too complicated for you. /comfort

    For starters why did you assume I was talking about weight when I was talking about buying something? Do you dream about fat women all day? or is it fat "Men"?

    It's a old English saying you faggot.

    Yes us Europeans are stupid.... we should bring in a Concealed gun law also so when we get pissed pissed off with our boss or we are just having a bad day I can shoot someone. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

    I hope Joft never leave's his trailer park home, coz he is gonna be so fucked in the real world.

    intel centrino @ 1.8 ghz
    512 mb ram
    radeon 9700 mobility
    80GB harddrive
    CD-RW/DVD drive

    Heh... i got my desktop for about 1500...

    Dell Dimension 8300:
    Pentium 4 2.7ghz
    1 gig ram
    Radeon 9800pro
    120gb HD
    DVD-Rom
    CD-RW drive

    My video card alone was $400 at the time.

    So if you just want somthing that can run ffxi.. i suggest a dell.
