So I’m looking to buy a new laptop. Currently I have a Dell 8600. I also have a pretty decent gaming PC. Athlon XP 2800+, GeForce 6800 Ultra, etc. As some of you may have noticed in the trading outlet. I’m selling all this stuff in hopes of putting some money towards a new laptop. The rest of the money I’ll get from my job at Outback Steakhouse.
I used to play WoW hardcore but have since retired. Basically I’m just looking for something to play some CS, the new Command and Conquer, WC3, and some sorta hack and slash (Dungeon Siege 2) on.
I’m not big into rediculous sized screens so 15.4 inches will probably work for me. After customizing an Inspiron vs an XPS system, the XPS costs about twice as much. In return though I’d be getting a 512MB GeForce 7950 vs some crappy go card.
I’m just wondering what people’s opinions are on getting an XPS style system versus something more standard. Does anyone know exactly what a “go” card is? I’ve been building my own computers pretty much all my life, but when it comes to laptop stuff it’s a bit more confusing. Any help would be appreciated.
