Planning on buying a used alienware laptop, help on specs?
Jun 12, 2011, 10:14 PM
I plan on using it for gaming like battlefield 3 and assassins creed revelations.
its the 17 inch
- Dual 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon 4870
- Intel Dual Core i7 620M Processor 2.67 GHz
- 4 gb ram
Will this laptop be good enough? Will the dual core with hyperthreading be enough or will it bottleneck?

yes it will be enough. your cpu will not bottleneck the gpu. a single core w/o hyper threading might, but deffintly not a dual core w/ ht.

Yeah it's a pretty good laptop, but hopefully you get a good price on it if it's used.
