Mate wants a new Laptop (APU)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I need some helping finding a new laptop for my friend. I've shown him the comparisons of the new APU's to sandy bridge i7's and He wants me to find him the best APU laptop out atm. I'm currently looking at the MSI CX650 but was wondering if theres anything i should consider/take into account when checking out these laptops. Also if anyone knows of any dealers in th EU.

Thanks for your help guys......

Chris.

If i were you id also include a cooling pad, those things get hot. You wouldn't want it turning off while playing.

The APU vs Sandy Bridge videos are for the Llano APU, which won't be out until late this summer. Right now Zacate is the only APU and it's only a few times better than Intel's Atom, definitely not comparable to Sandy Bridge.
