I've been looking at the Dell Inspiron 6400s with the 15.4" screen on the Dell website and I think that I like these. Which one is the one to get though? The cheap one there doesn't have the Intel Core 2 Duo processor but just a regular old Intel Core Duo. Is the 2nd version that much better than the first? I am always multi-tasking so I'm thinking that the middle one is the way to go. I can't tell the difference between that one and the high-end one other than it's $200 more.
Are these good computers anyways? Should I be looking at other options from other companies? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I just ordered a 6400. Mine has
core 2 duo 1.66
2 gigs ram
256 ATI Radeon video card
For 1119$ canadian before tax. I originally was going to get the 1300 but said whatever lets get the core 2 with 2 gigd. Video card could be better but its nearly the best dell offers. Hopefully it holds up...im not a hardcore gamer anyway so im sure this will serve me well.
