core 2 duo laptop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i want to buy this kind of laptop...preferably toshiba brand (suggestions are welcomed)

but currently they range in the 1k....

Question
how fast will the prices go down? (a year from now?)



I currently have a dell d600 and a dell latitude c810 laptop and couple others (DELL C810 p3 and p2s) that I will sell...but I want something that can handle heavy gaming...got em from liquidation sale

i think most toshiba's use intel gma 950 that are around 1k also anything integrated doesn't really do games that well their gaming laptops are 1,999 they have one for 798 in the gaming section which also has the intel gma 950-- not gonna do heavy gaming LOL u can look into asus @newegg or cyberpower. however if u need support cyberpower isn't good whatsoever i have a laptop from them it's kind of older but it still plays games like nothing they actually get it from ECS/uniwill and then let you customize it on their site check it out...link

not to put down toshiba but show us a specific model and we'll let you know how it performs against heavy gaming also some examples of games u would wanna play ??

I have an Asus Z96js with Core2Duo, it rocks. It has the ATI x1900 mobility, but the dvd/cd burner sucks.

They have wonderful configurators for laptops.

What's the word on this ibuypower.com site? Any good? I had never heard of them but for the money what they offer is pretty slick.
