Another laptop(sorry, guys)
Another one of my friends is hosting a minecraft server for about 100 people and wants their fps to be above 20. And he wants enough RAM space to expand up to 200. I said 16 GB RAM, but we wouldn't decide on a cheap enough laptop. He also wants an Ivy Bridge CPU and fairly decent graphics, a dedicated video card will be enough. He plans on running it 24/7 in the summer after college. Any help? Oh, and he will be going from his dorm to library and back so it needs to be fairly portable. His budget will be 1000-1400. Need help!Huh

If he wants an Ivy Bridge laptop, he's going to have to wait a few weeks or more, seeing as there's only a few gaming laptops ($1500+) that have Ivy Bridge CPUs at the moment.
