Wow what a deal, that's insane. Looking at the specs, you should be good to go playing it at the "decent to high" settings you specified. I personally have a Dell Vostro 1400 with an 8400M GS which plays it a high settings nice and smooth. The video card that laptop has is slightly below mine but I think it'll be ok.

If ctrl+f for 8200M, it's a bit lower than my card. 2gigs and 160 hd, you're good to go. Man i'm jealous 400 bucks jesus what a deal, but i play spore and stuff on my laptop so i guess it was worth it(600 bucks) XD.

well i don't know about you but 12.1 inch is a tad bit too small for me. imkongkong, if hl2 is the only game you plan to play, you should be fine with that laptop. You should be able to run it from mid-high settings on that laptop. If you plan to play maybe newer games(spore?), then I would sadly recommend another laptop. It's a shame you can't upgrade individual parts in a laptop besides RAM. :(

That's true but for it's size it has a very good configuration.(RAM, CPU, graphic card, hard disk, dvd-writer...etc)
I'm with smaller laptops!:)

Well, this is personally what I have, I love the laptop, it's perfect imo. Here is a review for it.

It is 14 inch, if you want the 15 inch, get the vostro 1500 since they're both virtually the same. As for linkage, crap it's not there on the dell website anymore and they're raising prices. :(

Well, you can try this:
