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
Agreed^^^ However look @ DELL VOSTRO 1500 too, it has the same features and its cheaper than XPS M1530 (because the XPS looks nicer and has a better design)
The entire XPS line seems overpriced every time I look at it... not saying they're not nice machines... just saying you're going to pay out the arse for them.
Like Skywalker said... the Gateway w/ the 8800 GTS is a much better bargain if you're into gaming on a laptop.
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.
