I've been having trouble finding the best gaming laptop that is 15.4 inches because most of the mag/website comparisons seem to be with the 17 inch+ laptops and I'm going to be lugging it around to classes so I don't want a big 17 inch or something that weighs too much + short battery life.
I'm looking for something that is under $2,300 or so. I don't like Alienware mainly because I dislike the design strongly, so nothing that looks similiar to it... Also a company with a strong rep/quality, like not having to worry about getting a dead pixel and not being able to return/exchange..
I was wondering if getting a 15.4 inch laptop right now is viable for playing any games like Obivlion or Doom or any future game in the next couple years, and being able to play it smoothly with high resolution + medium details with no lag spikes and such or is that just not possible with the current hardware?
Which would be better in the long run for gaming? AMD Turion 64 bit or the Intel Dual Core? I know that intel is supposed to come out with their 64bit and AMD with their X2 but I need a laptop by mid August so I was wondering if I should wait it out or will the new hardware come out too late?
This is a dumb question but I plan on just bringing my 19 inch monitor to my dorm and was wondering if most laptops today would allow me to easily hook it up?
Almost identical in size and specs. The 7600 with 512 MB is obviously going to have more memory and perform better on the games that prefer nVidia. Otherwise it is probably a horesapiece, the memory may give it an edge. I had a lot of request from the Linux crowd because I guess it likes nVidia better than ATI.
I can build the thing right now. I just have to get the web site updated. I will probably kick the freeloading NanoBot out and install this model in as a puppet regime instead.
It would cost slightly more now that I throw the DVD BUrner in with the Wakizachi.
