Laptop selection..
Reply
Posted 2010-01-09, 07:55 PM
Ok, So, when I started AIT in Arizona, I wanted a laptop bad. So, I went to bestbuy and found one that was $600.00 and snatched it up. Problem is, it doesnt perform how I want it to, I don't think I know enough about the way computers work to correctly purchase a gaming laptop, without spending $3000.00 on alienware.

I understand that you want a fast processor, with a decent amount of RAM and a video card that isnt generic..

Where can I find out what new processor's, or video cards are out, so I can make a smarter decision next time I buy a laptop.

The laptop would mainly be used for World of Warcraft and Warhammer.

If I had to guess, I'd say that one is probably decent for WoW and WAR, though I haven't looked at computer hardware in quite some time.

well ghz doesnt matter now because my computer is a 2.8 ghz and its not powerful .... i do play grand theft auto san andreas on it ..... but the i5 in the alienware should be over clocked allready
