recommend me a laptop.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well. my dad wants a laptop as his companion cube.

the budget is about $850 or less.. lower the price the better.

Hes only going to use it for internet and such, of course he needs good battery time.

He might give it to my sister and my sister uses 3dstudio she needs a good dual core and good graphics card, don't get too excited and get a top of the line processor.

Oh yeah, lightweight.
Good brands.
NEWEGG only.


+rep candiess for everyone.

I need the rep so I will work! I do not know the application you mentioned for sister? What GPU base standards or the like. Tell me and I will look.

Also any flex in budget? As you know always fun to spend your money not mine.

These MSI laptops look really nice.

There is an AMD dual core (AMD Athlon X2 QL-62(2.0GHz)) with a 9600GT for only $849, and an Intel dual core (Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26G) with the 9600GT for $949. There is even a 17" AMD dual core (AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-62 2.1G) with a 2600 for $699:

If you dont mind buying a Dell refurbished laptop, you can go to their Outlet site and score a nice one. I grabbed an XPS M1530 with an 8600GT, 2.4GHz Intel dual core T8300, 4Gb of ram, a 320Gb HDD and a WXGA+ screen (1400x900) for $719 (it was 50% off regular price)!
