I am currently looking for a gaming laptop that can play 3d online games smoothly like WoW(Defense Of The Ancients),GUNZ.
I WANNA ASK is DELL XPS M1530 suitable for me to play games well??
Processor:Intel Core2 Duo T5450
Windows Vista Home Premium
15.4" wide screen WXGA (1280X800) TFT display wth True Life
2GB DDR2 RAM
160GB SATA Hard Drive
128MB NVIDIA GEFORCE 8400M GS
1 of my relatives said that it isn't suitable because i play games on such systems will lag,he said that i need go for high end laptop because high end laptops are only for gaming.Besides,it is easy to become hot too..
Do i have the need to switch my target to a high end laptop?COZ IT IS QUITE EXPENSIVE
Any other laptops recommendations or any changes i need to make?like HARD DRIVE TO 7200RPM 160GB HARD DRIVE?
QUITE URGENT BECAUSE M1530 is doin promotion,free a wireless blue tooth mouse in 3 days time
Yeah, I'd want to look at a slightly more powerful processor and GPU, something like the T7300 and a 8600 GT, perhaps, but WoW doesn't require that much firepower to play. You probably don't need to target the high end laptop segment though, that would be overkill.
get a gaming desktop, and get a regular laptop... see, save money and have 2 instead of just one! not to mention the fact that a 'gaming' laptop's battery life is not going to be as long as a lower power pc due to the fact that you'll discharge it more often, not to mention bigger battery=more $$ to replace.
Get a Gateway, I bought the P-6831FX at best buy for $1250
3 gigs Ram
Nvidia geforce 8800 GTS 512 Meg
250 Gig SATA Drive
17 Inch 1440x900 LCD
802.11 A/G/N Wireless
Vista Home Prem
Intel Core 2 1.67 GHZ
Plays call of duty 4 all maxed and around 60 FPS!!!
I dont think you can still get them at $1250 but if you look for a coupon code or call gateway you could get one for around 1500 which still rocks!
This thing will blow away most 2000-2500$ laptops...
Well I assumed we all knew it was an 8800m GTS since it is a laptop... And if you can get such a great deal why not? Im just saying if you are looking to spend 1500-2000 then Gateway has your laptop...
(I dont think you will be able to get mine for 1250 anymore I saw it at Best Buy and they marked it up to 1699, still a great deal though)
I dunno whether it's just me, but decent laptops are getting cheap nowadays!
I just purchased my first laptop yesterday after a week or so of doin' my homework, and I ended up with a good gaming laptop for the buck.
