Such thing as a notebook with a good video card and not 17" huge?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been looking all over the place for a good laptop(Dell, Alienware, HP, blah blah), but I haven't been able to find a good notebook PC that's at most 15.4", but it has to have a gfx card that I can play newish games on.

All I am getting is confused

So many notebooks have integrated or those fake gfx cards that use your ram . I don't want a notebook that ishuge( a-la XPS ).

Any help guys? Where to look at least?

Are 6600go good?

I want to spend no more than $1500... and I want the 7900 512mb go

I'll settle if you can point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

This is close to what you are looking for, right? It's only a mobile 6800, but...

i dont think youll find one for that price..you might have to step it up.

desktop pc's and laptops cost differently.. specially since you cant build your own laptop....atleast i dont think you can.

Here's another one that's a little closer, but only has 512MB of RAM.

Final deal found. Core DUO, Radeon X1400, $1500. Best you're probably gonna do for the money.

That looks like a killer deal!! Thanks for the help guys. Hows that x1400 though? Isn't that share RAM? Can you play Half-Life? CoD2?

or Can you play not as new games?

Thanks. I'll think on it, maybe spend save some more dough...

(I don't want 17" cause they are too big I have a desktop... This is for convenience...
