Default Considering buying a notebook

I finally made the decision to buy a notebook and get rid of my old PIII.

I am between Dell Inspiron 6000 and IBM Thinkpad Z60m.



I would like to ask for your advice on what to choose between these 2 laptops. I never owed a laptop before so i don't know exactly what to be looking for in terms of specs.

I will be using it for my studies, internet, dvds and some basic gaming.

The Dell link doesn't display the lappy... says you need to adjust your order.

If you plan on doing any gaming, avoid integrated graphics up front. The ThinkPad doesn't offer the option to customize the graphics, the Dell model does.

Get the peppiest CPU you can, and go for a gig of RAM. A largish hard drive ain't a bad idea either.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / ASUS GeForce GTX 960 GTX960-DC2OC-2GD5
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB
2x4GB DDR3 1600 - 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win10 Ent 64-bit - Mionix Naos 7000 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard
