Help with laptop configuration Tags: Laptops Last response: October 22, 2010 6:41 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share varrak October 22, 2010 4:10:59 AM All, I'm in the market for a new laptop to use primarily for gaming, but also for work. Here is what I priced out at Malibal for about $2850 (cheaper than other resellers I've checked). The model is based on Clevo X7200: Display: 17.3" 1920 x 1080 FHD LED Backlit Display Processor: Intel Core i7-950 Memory: (6GB) 6144MB, PC3-8500/1066MHz DDR3 Graphics Card: Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 1.5GB GDDR5 (SLI) Hard Drive: 80GB Intel X25-M SATA2 SSD Drive Hard Drive 2: 500GB standard 7200 RPM HDD Optical Drive: 6X Blu-ray Reader 8X DVD+/-R DL Super-Multi Drive Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® 7 Professional; 64-bit Would you guys recommend any changes to the configuration or an entirely different laptop altogether? My budget is around $3,000. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.
