  1. Get a one with Core Duo cpu and a gig of RAM.

    That one is overpriced as its 3 year old technology.

    Keep looking.
  2. three years old ? that old ?
    i don't mind with that, but what i really want to know is : does that product is enough with my need?

    but thanks for the info :)
    anyway ... any suggestion that is acceptible within my budget limit ?
  3. You probably want more RAM for photoshop.
    Medium gaming is out of the question on your budget.

    Look for something used on ebay.
  4. Also as a suggestion, you can find pre-owned dell laptops on their site here:dell outlet. All systems are checked out and refurbished and can be bought for a lot cheaper than originally sold. Try looking at the Dell Inspiron 1505 or an HP DV 6000. Both are good models and are relatively inexpensive. Both ave low end graphics but may be able to do some lite gaming. good luck and let me know what you find.
