AMD Laptop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!

im thinking about buying a laptop for my college work, and i was wondering would an AMD be better for the job?

i'd use it mainly for Photoshop and office, gaming isnt really an issue, but a graphics card thats not too naff would do,

what would i need more of?

ram?HD space? processor? or all 3, what i need is something that can run photoshop and not die in the process!

www.ebuyer.com or ebay.co.uk would be the best place for me to get it from, cheap/cheerful!

thanks in advance!

norro!


p.s. i forgot to ask, are laptops easily upgradable? and what can you upgrade in them? as im a lappy noob! http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=96518 would this one do the trick?

If you are basically going to be using PS and Office, I'd look for one that is a really good value (pricing) and that is extremely portable (under 8lbs). With those apps, you really shouldn't be too concerned about the processor. A Turion or a Pentium M will perform almost exactly the same in that kind of usage. Just go with whatever you can afford and has the specs you want. I would however go with something that has at least 1GB of RAM and maybe an60-80 HDD.
