I am looking to get a mid-range gaming laptop. Dell has a good deal going on for their XPS with 4 Gigs of ram and a 7200 RPM hdd. I was wondering about the Nvidia Geforce 8600M GT. I don`t know if I should wait to see if Nvidia comes out with a newer version....a better card, or if I should stick with this deal.
Any suggestions? When does Nvidia usually do their product releases?
The 8600m GT is a nice midrange card, able to play most newer games on medium graphics. It's a good choice if you play things like WoW and older games and such, because you can play those maxed out with the 8600m GT
You should definitely check out the Vostro 1500. Its the laptop I am using, it has as good or better components than your configuration, and can be had for about 1200 versus the 1800 you are looking at.
