  1. Depend what you want to do with the laptop?
    Usually no, not really specially between P8800 and P9700.
  2. if What am I goıng to do, the best option is p9700?
  3. What is the point of paying extra $250 if you are just wainting movies and surf on internet?!
    That's why I asked you.
  4. Sometimes I play games but generally office programs, movies, internet surfing... Sometimes I open 10 windows in the sametime, old laptop stuck at that time etc.
  5. You are more than fine even with P8700.
  6. thanks bro...
  7. For games it's really important to have a good videocard. What videocard do you have?
  8. nvidia 9300
  9. Hi yedandva,

    Sony's P7000 is definitely a good laptop, it's very unique and attractive with it's looks as well as features. Even i too agree with hefox. You can save or use those $250 to buy some accessories.

    What do you think about nvidia 9300?
  12. P8700 is more than enough. It will never bottleneck the videocard. 9300 is not suitable for games but it's definely better than any graphic chip from Intel.

  14. It's a nice laptop. For the future I suggest you to buy a better Internet security application. I really don't recommend Norton Internet Security.

    I didn't buy it. It is just trial. What is your choice?
  16. Kasperky, Bitdefender, Nod32, Panda,etc
  17. A 9300 will play all kinds of games, just not current ones, unless you turn the settings so far down that many will wonder "what's the point?" But many other games, like Flash internet games, anything 2D (older titles like DiabloII, arcade games, parlor games, etc), will play just fine.
