    I wanted to get Intels Core 2 Duo Processor T9400 (2.53 GHz) 1066 MHz 6 MB
    But the shop cant get that processor it can get the T8400 (2.26 GHz) 1066 MHz 3 MB

    This system should be able to run CS:S at medium wouldnt it?
    Mabe even high.
  3. yup shoud do@ medium
  4. Why cant you go for the Sager?

    Similar Price,
    Same Res,
    OK less RAM but it is DDR3, (can be optimised to 4GB) and you could save on the OS by getting 32-bit
    Better GPU

    I would go for the sager, gonna easily run CS:S on medium
  5. I havent found a shop that sells Sager where i live.
    I am gona call some shops after the weekend and see what they say.
    I am gona take a better look at those notebooks
    Sager vs HP HDX(wich i need to special order to get).
    That is if i can find a shop that sells the Sager.

    Where do you live? You are only going to find the Sager systems online. They generally aren't sold retail like HP's, Dell's and Gateway's.
  7. I live in Iceland.
  8. Sager deliver to iceland!!!!!
  9. I am waiting to here from them to see how much the shipping cost would be.
    But i dont like the idea if i have to ship it over seas if there would be a problem of any kind.
  10. Iceland? Didn't it fall into the ocean last week? Glad to hear there's at least on guy NOT participating in the "recession".
