    Which Laptop Would You Choose ?
    « on: May 15, 2006, 09:34:17 PM »
    In a nutshell i will be using my laptop to watch movies,listen to music,planning on playing high graphics/quality previous,current and future games, run appz like photoshop,frontpage, burn dvds and cds at high fast/speed without leeching all of my system ram and cpu usage, want to connect my laptop to my tv to watch movies (with good quality/speed) from my notebook.I know that i have already posted something similar before. This time around its a bit different because i have done alot of research and narrowed my choices down. I am hoping to get honest opinions as to which laptop will suite my needs. Please check out the following laptops and tell me if you were to choose which one would you buy and why?

    Sadly, it's hard to find someone who mkaes a good laptop... If anything on your list, I would say Gateway. They have better support than the other compainies from what I know. It's a bit more money, but you may find it worth it in the end. Stay away from Acer and HP. I don't trust either of those companies.

    I recently bought the Dell inspiron 6000... found an online coupon, went for the higher than average memory, video, processor and such... and until I just recently screwed it up... (see my only other post/yikes) am really happy with it... even playing elder scrolls-oblivion is pretty dang smooth for a little laptop, and with the addition of a soundcard, I get better sound than my home stereo.

    Happy Hunting!

      Well, you made a close match. If you're not going to be doing much gaming, then this one is for you http://configure.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=ca&CS=CABSDT1&l=en&OC=OCINSP6402_FEAT_E2 ... The reason is becuase this laptop has on-board video. The other laptop would be better for you if you intend on gaming or watching DVDs and such.

        "256MB ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1400 HyperMemory" That's an onboard video o0 are you sure ? How do u find out if its an oboard video or not. Doesnt the description usually say something like integrated or something ?

        Oh sorry, got the links messed up lol  If you're going to be gaming and watching DVDs, then the link I gave you above is the one for you. If you won't be doing much gaming or DVD watcheing, use the other link. I know that the other laptop is on-board, becuase it says "Integrated Intel Graphics".

        99% of laptops have the graphics onboard and they are NOT upgradable ever.  ;)
