No halo 2 cause when i get that game i will upgrade memory and other stuff.

Buy the Toshiba Satellite 15.4" Widescreen Notebook PC (A215-S4697) and other Notebook Computers at circuitcity.com

Is that laptop good?

I only want to spend between $500.00-650.00.

ok so i have 1 ? for you then. The nvidia geforce go 7600gt is the same as the nvidia geforce 7600gt 256mb right? the only difference is one is for a laptop and one is for a desktop.

They both have 256mb.

oh and another ?

Does anybody know anything about this company?

::: CyberPower :::

They sell cheap computers and laptops. And I mean cheap.

yeah i know dude. I want to know if the geforce go 7600gt 256mb is the same as the geforce 7600gt 256mb for the pc or if its a little weaker since its a laptop.

I would never go buy from dell. So did you buy from cyberpower before? I just want to make sure that they are a good company like they say they are.


Oh and the 8400 mobile geforce is worse then the geforce go 7600gt right?

Two things:

1) This thread should be in the Laptop section in the forum.

2) Gaming laptoops are a waste of money you should just get a ultra desktop Rig and a low performsnce Laptop for the same price and be able to play games on the desktop at very high settings and just do work related things on the Lappy.

The 7600 Go (for laptops) is different than the desktop version but it's concept is the same. It's a powerful midrange card. It also runs circles around the 7400 in gaming performance. It is more expensive depending upon where you buy it from but it's money well spent.
