  2. Thanks for the help I think I have a laptop in mind but I'm not totally sure I'm stuck between these Five laptops.. Any recommendation one which would be the best would be greatly appreciated. <-- I might going with this one but I've tried searching up the graphics card and didn't get much info. Any ideas on the specs of Geforce GT 220M? Or is it just a typo...
  3. Cant really find 220m it might be a typo.
    but heres a site for benchmarks on gpu for laptops
    hmm... for the choice of laptop i would go with.
    or a smaller screen
    just because both have the Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 which is 2.4GHZ and 3mb L2 Cache comparing to 2mb cache youll see a difference in performance there and the FSB is 1066MHZ.. And the P series draw 25W comparing to 35W like the T series, and usually t series is 667FSB-800FSB...
    and for the video card for both of them its nvidia GT130 the link will show you where it stands for performance wise but heres the link for the card it will play almost all games on high so youll be good with that..

    Prob go with the bigger screen for better resolution. your choice i hoped i helped.
