"A new laptop for emulation." Well that's your first problem. I suppose it could just depend on the games that you want to play if they're lighter or not but for the most part, laptops are never good for emulation. Chances are you'll also have overheating issues with any laptop you pick. The laptop itself is not bad though, it could run quite a few on the lighter games. Such as Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy X.

comparing native pc games & emulated games is a ridiculous nonsense.

Many games under pcsx2 may be really more CPU demanding than the games you mentioned.

I'd say many games would be able to run@ Full speed as long as you don't push internal res too high (2 x, maybe 3x)

I said "would" because I don't know how the linux build generally performs. But what I said is valid for the windows build.

EDIT : Provided you devide one day to use the windows build, feel free to ask here : http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Sticky-Wi...y-computer
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go

I wish we could get x2 or x3 on Linux, but since SW mode is only thing reliably working, it's pretty much native res only.

don't bother to buy even an alienware, they're not that great, if you're planning to buy a computer for pcsx2, why not just buy a desktop, okay it's bigger and you can't take it with you, but you will get more bang for your buck.

That laptop will do well with most PS2 games, actually.

Some heavier stuff will require some Speedhacks and low resolution,
and like with any PC, there are games it won't be able to handle,
but, yeah-- definitely suitable for PCSX2.

Really really sorry to answer, I believe it will do fine with many games and struggle with a few... but then, even powerful desktops struggle with some Smile
