with a wiped hard drive, nvidia mobile card, 4gb of memory, and intel core2 2.0ghz.
what operating system would you put on it, and what else would you do with it.

examples
(put linux on it, and sell it)

(put Windows on it, and use it for gaming)

Laptops really aren't that great for gaming in my opinion, especially with first person shooters.

1. There's no way in hell I could play a FPS game without an external keyboard or mouse. It would be pretty damn hard to play with a touchpad, and the keys on a laptop are tiny.

2. The display isn't big enough. I game with a 28" widescreen monitor. A laptop display would look like a GameBoy screen to me.

So I'd put Linux on it and sell it. LOL Laughing
