on the verge of buying my new laptop,but hit a slight problem?

the choice is very close and only £50.00 difference between the 2 laptops,

Acer Aspire
Athlon 64 3400+
Nvidia GO5700 64mb card

or

Fujitsu-siemens
Athlon 64 3200+
Ati 9700 128mb card

the big difference is the graphic cards 64mb or 128mb.
my choice is the acer its £50.00 notes cheaper plus has slight advnantage in other areas,but the ati 9700 128mb card does look good?
any advice out there?

The 5700 go is roughly equivalent to a mobility 9600...the 9700 mobility's are 40% faster than the 9600's!!

If you plan on gaming at all with it, go with the fujitsu...the 3400 vs 3200 difference will be negligible.

When you finally do choose and receive the laptop, run CPU-Z to make sure your ram is running at 400MHz. It has been an issue with some motherboard makers to run a divider that does not correspond to the CPU multiplier, making the ram run slower than it should.

Id personally go with Fujitsu, 3400 or 3200 or 64mb to 128 mb, definately choose gfx seen as how either processor is still powerfull.

Plus Fujitsu laptops tend to look slick
