I am looking a buying a laptop soon and this will be my first laptop. My price range is between £1000 - £1500 and I am looking for one that will do well with 3D tasks. I have found these two laptops that look like they will dod for what I want: HP Asus
What do people think of the spec of these laptops?
Also if anyone knows or owns a laptop that has good performance and they enjoy using please let me know. I am open for sugestions.
The laptop would be used for:
Thanks in advanced.
From experience as an HP technician, I would avoid HP notebook computers. Many of them have heat issues when running any remotely processor intensive application even when sitting on a smooth, hard, flat surface and an ambient temp of under 75 degrees.
Yeah, those higher clock speeds do look good but, the newer dothan and yonah cores from Intel are much better. Stick with those especially the dual cores.
At the time I wasnt really thinking about the Asus being dual core and was just looking at the speed of 3.4GHz(HP) and 2GHz(Asus).
After the relpies from here and some reviews that I have read I am really prefering the Asus.
Its got more RAM, better GPU, better battery life, its lighter and I like the sound of the new Intel Core CPU's.
Does anyone know what the 256Mb SMA means on the end of the GPU?
