Is it worth it?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am in need of a laptop for programming, browsing, and magic online. I can get a thinkpad t400 with a 2.53 ghz processor, the lower resolution and without dedicated graphics and a hard drive for $175 USD. It has 4 gigs of ram and I would be installing an ocz agility 3 into it. So, is this what I want, or is it just way too out of date to use?

$300 +/- ~$50

I need something with good build quality (coming from a uni body MBP) that is portable. It would be nice if I could get something with some decent graphics for some mobile counterstrike and minecraft. I think something with the Intel graphics 4000 would be good

They are pretty decent I guess. You can find good deals for a laptop but not in a good specs if that is what you meant.
I would recommend you raise your budget for better specs.
