Laptops are designed keeping a target user in mind. The different parameters to consider while designing a laptop are battery life, processor speed, graphics, weight of laptop and cost. Gaming laptops come installed with the fastest processors, cutting edge graphics cards. A hefty battery pack, huge heat sink, special ventilation ducts, and several cooling fans and can give the same performance as that of high-end tower PCs. These laptops provide thrilling 3D gaming experience and mobility to gamers, be it LAN game parties or while traveling.

Gaming performance is closely connected with the quality of the graphics card. ATI and NVIDIA have mobile versions of their fast cutting edge graphics cards, complete with 128MB or even 256MB of video memory. Try looking for laptops with ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 graphics processor. They are currently the hottest in market!

Another criterion to select a laptop is the processor. If weight of up to 13 pounds is not an issue then you could consider Intel's 3.8-GHz Pentium 4 or the Athlon 64 FX CPU processors. For lower weight laptops go with the fastest available in the category: Intel Core Duo or AMD Turion 64 CPU.

Apart from selecting a laptop with hard disk capacity of over 80 GB, consider the speed of the hard disk. Conventional 5,400-rpm drives work fine for most desktop and entertainment PCs but you would need a 7,200-rpm hard drive to play 3D games without jitters, pauses and long loading game time.

The minimum screen size of your screen should be at least 15.4 inches. Anything less and you will limit the visual graphics detail of your games, as well as your shooting accuracy. Gaming laptops are now available in different hot designs. Manufacturer Alienware has its famous glowing alien head, and other vendors like Falcon Northwest, Hypersonic, and Vodoo PC offer automotive class custom paint jobs. Dell XPS systems come with customizable LED lights.

Now, regarding the cost. When you are talking about gaming laptops, it's all about the best cutting edge technology available in laptop segment. Depending on what configuration you go for prices could range anywhere from $2500 to $4242 for a Vodoo brand laptop?
