Folks, my daughter spilled ginger ale all over my old laptop keyboard (Toshiba) and it has shuffled off this mortal coil. We have not killed and eaten her yet, that can wait until she is a teenager. It's OK, though, that Toshiba gave me a lot of life and I have been meaning to replace it for some time. I'm sure it's not worth the cost of a fix anyway.
I would love a little feedback for a guy who does his own desktop builds but knows very little about the world of laptop specs.
This computer will get light-duty office use, and lots of web surfing, writing, a fair amount of Photoshopping, and a bit of gaming (could never do any gaming at all with the old machine, so I'd like to step up here).
I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a Sony CW-series laptop and would like your impressions of the line. I admit, one reason is I simply like the style and the keyboard feel. I also like the approx 14" screen size -- any bigger and I'd use my desktop.
A couple of specifics: Is it worth stepping up to the P8700 processor with 1066FSB (+$50 from P7450, +$150 from T6600)?
Also, how's the GT230 GPU as opposed to the G210 ($50 difference)? Again, worth it, even if I may have to wait? Finally, I dig the white finish, but worry it will show the dirt and will probably go black. Anyone have a white one want to comment?
Any feedback on this would be very appreciated. I'd like to order today.
Well, first, i will never do any gaming on a laptop.i don't see the point,i would not feel confortable while playing.
i think the processor you've mentioned sounds all right,(the next one has got a big difference on money,but for my opinion, i won't put a very high processor on it,keep on mind that laptops get hot.
And for the graphics,the GT230,you get 512mb,which i think its very good, it gives great performance.it does worth it to wait.
If you like the white finish go ahead as long as you take good care of it and protect it when you are not using it.otherwise i will get the black.
and one thing,i recommend minimum 4 gb for a good performance.
