Hunting Down an Ultra Mobile Turion Based Laptop

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Im Ideally Looking for anything below 14.1" That uses a TL-60 or above 2Gb-4Gb of RAM and A decent graphics chip would be nice also.

Starting college again in september so I need a new toy, coz my current dell is like a brick furnace.

Anyone know of anything that matches this checklist? Ive been searching google for nearing 2 weeks trying to find such a lappy to no avail.

Preference really. A Core 2 Duo would be fine but Im sort of interested in what AMD has to offer.

The only thing Ive found so far is an Acer ferrari

Orphan, if you'll settle for the TK-53, Acer makes one (5050-5430). Not sure what OS you'd prefer but I think they are being shipped with Vista Home Prem.

Good luck with your purchase

Hey Orphan, I am actually surfing on what you want right now. I got a steal from bestbuy; normally i do my own builds but for a laptop i had to break down and buy it. Anyway for 850$ plus tax so about 950$, my laptop is as follows:

HP Pavillion 2745 Special Edition (has really cool graphics all over it Black/Bronze color)
2.0GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-60 (2.0 GHz)
3.0Gigs of RAM
1600Mhz FSB
Integrated video (the only thing I don't like) and it shares up to like 1024Mb of the RAM
Lightscribe DVDRW DL
Wireless N Wifi
Vista Premium
250Gig HD

I think it has gone up in price because of the demand. Also, they no longer have this exact model, they have one with a little slower FSB and less ram and a smaller HD.

If I was you i'd check the different retailers: best buy, circuit city, etc. because on occasion they have a really good deal. Also check out: www.bensbargains.net for crazy deals. The website is hosted by, Ben, and he somehow gets all the promotional codes for all the big companies. Wouldn't hurt do browse.

Best of Luck!!

Just for your info, I have played on tl60 and a tl56 and there is no real difference and the tl56 was thrown into a lot of hp and dell laptops that are about 1.5-2 years old now.

I think im settled on a Laptop I like:

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en...-81683469.html

Good spec, with touch screen, which will be handy if I decide on doing graphic design at college this year.

Only sucky bit is 6150 Graphics...eww.

I might ring HP and see what the options are for ATI graphics and a better processor. I probablt know the answer already though...
