Re: What is a good base configuration of a laptop?
Hey, you are looking at the right types of spec, for sure.
4GB's of RAM would be amazing on a laptop, and would also show it is using a 64bit operating system for faster processing.
Your looking for a dual core these days, and not a single.
As for the graphics card, as long as it isn't an Intel one/similar and is dedicated, it should be fine, but there are many different types, and some Nvidia/ATI ones may not perform great either.
One other issue I find is because of the graphics cards not being great on many laptops, the screen resolution, even on a really small 15-17 inch screen, seems to be above HD spec and if you wanted to play games at the native res, would really struggle.
