I know, 2.0 was my only concern, so I'm trying to see if I can get it a little higher... plus, I don't always play online games, I bought the Orange Box about two weeks ago but it is **** on my computer, so... fingers crossed!

"Approximate Battery Life up to 3 hours of battery life"

That's not much life at all if its not plugged into the mains. Because of its awfully short battery life you will be constantly recharging it which will be a pain to say the least. I think it will most likely work out cheaper if you buy a desktop with a similar spec, unless you really think you need a laptop?

I agree. Do you have to have a laptop for gaming? Dektop PCs will work better for gaming and are cheaper
