Laptop advice

18 posts in this topic

I dont know if this is the right area for posting this but here goes.

I want to buy a laptop that I can play the game on, the spec doesnt have to be fantastic and the FPS do not have to be in the high numbers. I just need to be able to spawn a tank or run around town with acceptable figures. Are there any of you that run a laptop and can recommend one? If so what kind of price and spec are they.

I wouls appreciate anyones help here

Hi,

If it was myself, I'd contemplate a Dell XPS, but you've got to be careful on the gfx card you get as that is where these Dell's start to fail, I've looked at the Sony Viao in your price range and it has the gfx card that you don't want (8600M GS), you must get a GT, this is your price bracket. If you could squeeze another £200 you'd get a better machine, but that goes as standard I guess.

For your pocket you're looking at the XPS M1530

The 8600M GT is better than the GS or G version of that card, however it's not at the top of the range any more, so don't be expecting huge FPS in game, 2 gig memory and 250gb HD

If I was you I would put just a few extra quid towards it get the next processor up 2.2ghz and the next battery up as well for reliablity, unless you are going to be using it powered up all the time then don't bother.

Basic comes to £779, with other processor £849, this includes delivery.

It can if you download the full latest patch (as posted by Bloo). Although for 30 quids if you phone dell they'll install that instead of vista.

Looks good, cheaper than buying direct from dell. Have to question whether it's one that has been RTB (2nd hand), but yeah, looks pretty good and you get 3 year warranty on it + 4gig.

£1,193 @ Dell that 1530 you priced from ebay igor, good saving that.

THis was the one I was looking at:

NOW with AMD Dual™ Core Turion 64 X2 TL58

64Bits (2 x 1.9GHz, 1MB L2 cache)

2GB DDRII Memory Upgradeable to 4GB

120GB SATA Hard Drive

512MB ATI RadeonHD2600 graphics

http://www.meshcomputers.com/Default.aspx?PAGE=PRODUCTVIEWPAGE&USG=PRODUCT&ENT=PRODUCT&KEY=235829

For £750

That looks pretty good for the price as well. Never had an ATI before, reviews seem favourable as well.

Finalising the deal with them now. Asked if it is brand new and not returned. Also asked if they will throw in a carry case ;)

Thanks for the help here Sres - I will write a report when I get it
