I've been searching for a new laptop that will mainly be used for multimedia playback and Blu Ray burning along with some gaming. The games I'll most likely be playing are RTS', WoW, Diablo 3 (when its released) and possibly some FPS.
I've come across this Sony VGN-FW490 CTO.
The specs are:
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T9900 (3.06GHz)
8GB DDR2-SDRAM (DDR2-800, 4GBx2)
320GB SATA Hard Disk Drive [7200 rpm]
Blu-ray Disc playback/burning
ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD4650 graphics card with 1GB vRAM
16.4" widescreen with XBRITE-FullHD™ LCD technology (1920x1080)
Ordering this from Sony's website the price comes out to be $2270.
Is this good enough for what I need? Is it too expensive? Could I possibly lower the processor to the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T9600 (2.80GHz) to save $400 without sacrificing too much performance?
I can honestly say I'm guilty of being allured to the Sony brand name yet, I'm certainly open to any other suggestions and brands. I'm willing to pay the $2270 but it's pretty hard to swallow. Any suggestions or comments would be extremely appreciated! Thanks in advance!
I said 2.8GHz with 6Mb cash is completely enough for what you said also you can save another 400$ by reducing RAM to 4Gb
that high end specification (T9900 CPU + 8Gb RAM) is for gaming in high resolution high detail high frame rate
are going to do all these ?
