Need a Laptop

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am in the university and I need to buy a laptop.

Could say me which to buy??

I want that it have:

- C2D with at least 4MB cache..
- Good graphic card, because I like games..
- 1,3 Mpx WebCam
- Good sound system

What lappy do you think that I should buy?? Or I should wait for windows vista??

As far as I'm concerned, that is the best for the money. If you want you could try to find something better on newegg, but I doubt you will get much better (as far as C2D).

EDIT: Othewise if you are willing to shell out extra cash you can customize the ultimate gaming laptop...http://www.alienware.com/product_det...de=SKU-DEFAULT

HP will be your best bet... customize a DV6000, you can get a C2D and a GF7400... get 256 ram and get a gig stick on newegg.

I have an idea, buy a monkey, stick it in a box, and buy a C2D chip and stick it in there as well and watch the magic happen!!!!!

But seriously go look at dell. Chose the media laptop with the widescreen and customise that thing tell its down right sexy...here screw it, I'll make somthing really quick for you (SORRY CANT )

...I know you can get a 7900GS in one of their laptops too..mayb just select the lowest XPS and customise that..here, ill check

EDIT....Dangit...it didn't save the configuration...umm...well...just select the cheapest XPS and customise that to yout C2D...mayb 2 gigs of ram and a 7900GS and youll be set

But Dell - Portugal only sells the Dell Precision and the Dell Latitude.. And they'r the doble of the price of an Asus...

EDIT: What do you think of the Asus Z53JC-AP722H ?? And the 7300 TC is good for games ??
