Default Re: Laptop Question

You can't fit a desktop in your droom room? Not to carry around just if you want you can game on it... Laptop being used for notes, homework, and stuff. Frankly if I had laptop in college i'd want it to be clean of alot of programs that way during lecture time i'm not playing CS:S or COD2...

that computer has ddr2 533 mhz ram which is most likely faster than the ram u guys use.

In my opinion that looks quite good, 1GB of ram and the vid card ain't too bad. The cpu is kinda slow but it should be ok too. If u want a gaming laptop then I'd say that the one u posted is quite good, but as some people already said, laptops ain't designed for gaming.
Another good idea would be to get a very cheap laptop which u use for word processing etc. (try ebay, u might find something for really cheap) and then get a good desktop for gaming.

i have to say my laptop plays HL2 fine with everying on high, except for Anti-aliasing which is on 2x and anisotropic filtering is also on 2x, i get a very playable frame rate and it looks great, my laptop cost 1399 but i think u can get it for 1199 now, it also plays far cry with everything on full fine. i am also at uni thats why i got one becuase i use it in the libary and there is campus wide wi-fi which i cool. i will admit a desktop would be much quicker but u cant take it every where u go! also with mxm module u can upgrade the grx card at a later date. but i would wait till the last posible min before u buy one cos new ones come out all the time. also u yanks pay a lot less for ur hardware then us brits!!
