M17 vs. m15x Tags: Laptops Cache Last response: June 19, 2009 8:29 AM in Laptop Tech Support Share therussian747 June 17, 2009 8:46:08 PM I'm looking at two laptops I was wondering which one will perform better at playing games like FSX and Crysis? M15x -15.4" 1440x900 LCD -512 MB Geforce 9800 GT -Intel core 2 Duo 2.5 Ghz (6mb cache, 800 mHz FSB) -Vista 64 bit -4Gb Dual Channel DDR@ SO-DIMM at 667 mHz -160GB 7,200 RPM (8mb cache) m17 -17" 1440x900 LCD -Dual 512mb Ati mobility radeon hd 3870 - crossfire -Intel core 2 T955 2.66 Ghz (6mb cache, 1066 FSB -Vista 64 bit -4 GB Dual Channel DDR3-SO DIMM at 1066 mHz -160 GB 7,200 RPM (8mb cache) I cant decide between the two laptops because the m15x has Geforce which is good at crysis but the m17 has faster FSB and ddr3 ram at 1066 mhz, plus the faster cpu. PS. both laptops cost the same so this is why im asking thx.
