Hi mates,

My fathers laptop is dying because the screen is kinda flickering and it does weird things. Although it's almost 4 years old so it's time for a new one


Specs of the one we have now:
- intel geniune t1300 @ 1.66 ghz
- 1 gb ram
- 80 gb harddisk
- windows xp nl

What I think Iam looking for:
- Intel core i3 (because its more future proof)
- 4 gb ram
- windows 7

these two look nice to me what do you guys think about it?

Asus K72JR-TY038V

MSI CR720-004NL:

1st thing's first

do you want to game?

if yes go Asus

if not go MSI casue MSI uses the IGP

while the Asus use the ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 which is good only for light gaming (my friend has it)

then go Asus, it has decent battery around 3-4hrs if you keep all the powersaving features on

but don't turn on the Queit Office mode as that turns off the Fan completely and you can BSOD and overheat the laptop

Asus build quality is OK and I've used my friends laptop which is the exact model

and yes you can do soem decent cod4 and WoW gaming on it

it shouldn't lag, he can play BC2 on low to medium settings on it
