Default After much searching and a lot of help from u guys

Firstly id like to thank the users that posted in reply to my previous laptop related post. I've done my homework and was wondering how THIS machine would cope with more tasking activities.

How well can i run -
WoW
Guild Wars
CS:S
Flash PRO CS3
Dreamweaver PRO CS3
Half Life: The orange box

MY budget is stretched already from 425($830) to 500($960) so is this a good laptop for the price, or does someone else know a better performer in the 0-500 bracket?

Hit me back and much thanks
----
Tom

Newegg don't post to the UK AFAIK. A list of English sites like Newegg are:
www.scan.co.uk - www.microdirect.co.uk and Ebuyer.com
That laptop has a 2400XT which isn't the greatest card around. I would imagine that it will run those games fine but perhaps with the exception of Episode 2.

That will run all those games pretty easily. Dreamweaver / Flash could be a little slow, but they'll run. If you're going to be using those programs a lot, you might want to consider a faster processor.

All of those have integrated graphics though. And if he wants to play games then he'll need a dedicated GPU.
