Well I still have the capability of running 8gb in dual channel, or 12gb in single channel. I think the HDD is the first thing I will upgrade, most likely to a SSD.

Not sure if anyone is still contemplating purchasing but I will help if they are.

If you have any numbers I would be very interested. I'm looking into laptops now (replacing an old Sony Vaio), and after looking at this, this might be the ticket. Probably not as much oomph as the Lenovo Y410p I was looking at, but definitely cheaper with decent power. Side note: hello from Dunlap thumb.gif

Well I downloaded Left 4 Dead last night as I had gotten it for free with my 2900xt many years ago lol. I just started it up now. I know its not a super graphic intensive game but it can still look decent.
Here is what I found with FRAPS
I ran the settings at the max it would allow, and still the lowest FPS I saw when a massive hoard came, was 42. Was averaging 57 according to fraps.




Are there any free games or benchmarks you would like me to try and run? Would be happy to help.

Mostly would be running Dota and Minecraft, maybe some Hitman (any of them). IF it runs Dota ok, that'd be fine by me

I have never seen a class 2 mobile GPU on a laptop that costs less than a thousand bucks, let alone less than 500 bucks. I would be all over this had I the spare cash. And the sleep aluminum body is icing on the cake. thumb.gif

http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-8750M.87147.0.html

I got a lenovo y510p with 4700QM, 8gb ram, 1tb HDD, and 750m 2gb GDDR5 for $484+tax from lenovo outlet. So you can get a class 2 for well under $1000.
