Looking for a gaming note/netbook
Currently looking for a portable gaming netbook that would play games like Tera and Guild Wars 2 on Medium+ quality and preferable screen size less than 14 inches with at least decent battery life like 5 hours or so if possible.

Budget? Less than 14in or less than or equal to 14in?

Budget dont matter as long it has decent battery life and less than 14 inches.

The Sony VAIO S with the GT640M LE bios mod is the only model I can think of. Most manufacturers have moved exclusively to ultrabooks with Intel HD graphics for the 13.3in category. The 14in category is the lowest size category that has more robust options for dedicated GPUs.

Having said that, the VAIO S is a very, very nice unit.

Damn that was my first choice too. The other one was those Origin PC but the brokerage fee from UPS is going tochew me up. Looks like the mod will only work for windows 7.

Gaming note/netbook and battery life don't mix haha. You might be able to find a decent compromise though.

There was just a review here on the Eurocom notebook that may fit your bill. If not check their site as I believe they have 13" ones that you can practically customize till your hearts content. If they don't have one may Sager will (if I'm not mistaken they are both Canadian or at least ship from Canada)

I think I'm going to get the eurocom monster base model as I dont really need a high powered quad core from the review and also hope that that extend the battery abit. Now I just need to find an external battery pack that can work with this netbook just in case the battery life is still too short. I wish this had a battery sheet similar to the sony cause that would make this one perfect.
