If you've been following our Laptop Confidential II video contest, you might have already picked out your favorite film noir mini movie created by our talented Gizmodo readers. Entries are now closed, and we've narrowed it down to the top nine submissions.

Take a look at top nine videos here, and get ready for the final poll on Friday where you get to decide which one of our worthy contestants wins a $2000 dream laptop with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor inside. We'll announce our winner Friday afternoon.
