Need to buy a laptop!?
Right it's that time of the year and i'm looking to buy myself a laptop. Ideally I'd want something which i can use in the office on a domain while i work (Either XP pro or vista ultimate) I would also need it for when i travel to LAN events for my gaming addiction. I tend to play games using the half life 2 engine so i need something with a bit of power which isn't going to lag like a bitch.
Looking to spend £500.00 tops if i can.
Alienwares are a little out of my budget considering i have a pc at home for my usual gaming.
Hi ... To run half life 2 you will need a dedicated GPU rather than the shared variety.. I have a laptop and it runs OK with an Nvidia 7800gtx. The cpu is a Centrino 1.8ghz. and 1 meg of ram. I've tried to run Crysis and its struggling a bit though!!
I don't usually do this but .......

Apologies, it's Monday I need to feel self-important about other peoples errors ;)
You want to buy a lamptop??
Stretch your budget a little and buy a Samsung R700. I love mine :D
It's all the more better because I didn't pay for it too!
Back onto the subject of laptops. Where can i see the spec of one of these R700 and i would like my own dedicated graphics. maybe an 8 series geforce :)
The model I have has the following (NP-R700-AS01UK) -
T8100 2.1Ghz Dual Core
NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS - 128 MB
Hope that helps.
:o oops !! meant 1gig of course ... just checking to see if you lot were awake this morning !!!!!

An extra 100 quid and can get 512mb graphics and a bluray drive :P
If it's going to be used for work, you could always call up you suppliers and ask for a demo or three, which will give you a chance to decide what spec you need, or how comfortable the keyboard is (which is important for gaming). I've always found that they're happy to lend them for a few weeks (especially if they think that I might buy 40 of them).
