Im ready to buy a new laptop, and Im wondering which will be best for the above games since I do alot of traveling. Im looking at the new emachines system with the 64 bit chip, or the dell 8600 inspiron. both have the ati 9600 graphics chip, but the emachines only has 64 meg whereas the dell has 128. they are about the same price for the rest of the specs to be similar.
No notebook being sold today will REALLY be able to cope well with HL2/D3 - That being said, the size of the graphics RAM won't really be important. I would look at either the VooDoo M:855, or the Inspiron 8600.
Who's General Failure and why's he reading my disk?
