HI ALL

I am running a dell Inspiron 9400 at the moment with a Gforce 7800 go inside, Quite nice for gaming to be honest. I have the opportunity to buy rather cheaply a Vaio A60GP

http://www.sony-mea.com/vaio/vgna60gp/vgna60gp.asp

running a ATI x800. Would you swap? I cant find a comparison between the Gforce Go and the ATI x800 card anywhere?

What exactly is the best gaming laptop at the moment anyways?


Cheers..

7800 would blow away that crappy x800. I have seen the x800 perform in gaming on a similiar HP laptop and I wasn't impressed.

I have seen the 7800 perform in a Dell E1705 and it was awesome. Remember you can't upgrade a laptop video (not yet) and so you should buy the best so it will last you longer in the future.

I would personally wait for Core2Duo to hit the mobile market.

The vaio is actually running a x600 graphics card, which is downright garbage. Your dell blows it away. Plus, Vaio's are not meant for gaming whatsoever.

I configured a E1705 Dell on their site for $1700-1900 with a Core2Duo and a 7900 Geforce.

Not a bad deal!

I know two lads I work with with a E1705 and a E1505. They are built cheap but they look nice and the Truebrite screen looks great.

Interesting deal. Dell does make decent laptops to be honest. The desktops are terrible though. (Although i wouldnt mind owning one of those XPS 700 cases :D )

I know about 5 guys who have bought Dell laptops ranging from 9800pro to the 7800 Geforce. E1505, E1705, etc. all work great and no problems. I think they make good laptops to for the price. You can get what you want and how you want it and hardcore XPS if you want. You save $ over Alienware etc. (even though Alienware is a sellout to Dell).

Systemmax makes some good systems too but they're not as configure happy as Dell (although they are going to be in the future)


Dell desktops do suck though, you're right.

:evil:  X600 is NOT garbage! In the future, please refer to it as a POS! I love my POS video card!

Stick with your current laptop; 7800 > X600/800 or whatever it is.
