Performance of this LAPTOP

http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10076701&catid=

I think this is the best portable laptop under 700CAD.

128MB Shared ATI Radeon Xpress 200M IGP
This is the graphics that this laptop has.
Does anyone know if this can play Counter Strike 1.6 well?
and is Vista capable???

is the GMA900 better than Xpress 200m?

Also, which of the moblie processors are capable of 64-bit.
Celeron M?
Centrino? (Pentium M + 8xx chipset + Wireless Pro)
How about the Sempron in the laptop i chose?

Thanks.
and also if anyone knows a good value laptop that plays CS1.6 perfectly under $700 CADmax. That would be appreciated.

  1. CS 1.6 Hell my dad's old Go440MX could do that no problems.

    You should be fine.


    Side note: I cant believe how the CND$ has climbed against the USA$. what, are we living in a bunker now. Come on Bush.

    i blame the schools

    as for cs1.6 youll have no problem

    is it vista ready? well you might have to call up future shop and ask them cause i see nuthin on that page indicating it is
  3. oh, as for the 64 bit question, why do you need 64 bit?

    Wait for an Intel fanboy to answer bout their stuff

    The septy CPU does not support 64 bit IIRC.

    The new new ones I think do, but that may only apply for desktop chips.
  4. because that would at least make me feel like the laptop modern.

    And I also want to run vista if possible.

    I thought geforce 440 is better than the xpress :S

    Should i go for a gma900 or that?
  5. I actually found a lil bit better laptop for 20 bucks more.

    its a turion64 so its a 64-bit capable for sure.
    although its half the memory...

    hm........

    i've seen an article about a laptop with ati xpress 200m and the guy said it's like a x300
  7. Oh, and i guess that's also good enough for cs.

    BUT
    http://pcvonline.com/productDetails.aspx?id=3874
    Turion64 and x1300 with EXTERNAL 64mb....for $700
    would this be a better choice since it wont eat up my memory?

    Im only going to play CS1.6 MAX on a laptop and a game that is less demanding that cs.
  8. oh yeah, good enough for cs 1.6.
    by the way, the article i've read was this one:

    http://www.mobilityguru.com/2006/08/21/best_buys_for_back_to_school_notebook/


    but this one you showed seems very good to me
  9. It MIGHT run Vista - although you can be almost positive it will not run it very well. By the sounds of it, Vista will require 2 gigs of memory for a smooth experience.
  10. ouch.
    oh well i guess ill use the 64bit of windows xp since i am getting the turion 64.

    good luck with that.
  12. Ya know, just because you have a 64 bit CPU doesnt mean you have to install a 64-bit OS.

    In fact there really is no performance increase from installing XP 64 bit, Maybe vista, but we wont know till they do benchmarks. My .02cents.
