I wanna buy a new laptop - is this the best one for me??

Postby appleman77 on Tue Jan 29, 2008 5:32 pm

This is the model im interested in gonna buy it tomorrow i got the link here :

http://www.acerdirect.co.uk/Acer_Aspire ... ersion.asp

I did my homework and compared like the dell desktops and laptops with this and looked on the sony vaio website but they got no prices on sony website grrr so i got annoyed :[

The dell xps costs about 600 quid for the gaming laptop but has only Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 3100 for graphics

Lol can u tell me if this is a good gaming laptop ?? I was thinking about cost mostly as I am spending a bit above my budget (around £500)

The main disadvantage i can see is the prosessor is low whilst it has a good graphics card.

Is this a good choice for me??

Will it run games like Battlefield 2 Medieval Total War2 and other relatively recent games ok ??

I'd appreciate all advice and suggestions ...Thanks

GT > GS

Remember that, don't be fooled by a 8800GS 512MB card because the performance isn't actually that great.

For £500 you're not going to find much in the way of a laptop made for gaming but you could build yourself a decent computer.

You mean the 8800GTS 512, which is actually the best card out right now :lol:
