Notebook Purchase Help
I'd appreciate any feedback that anyone might be able to give. I'm considering purchasing an Inspiron Notebook from Dell. I'd like to use this to play some games on. The thing is, I've been away from PC Gaming for such a long time, I am not sure what requirements of systems specs there even is now. I would occasionally play Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 & The Sims 2 which are games I already own. So, would the following specs be good enough to play these games without any problem? And are the specs good enough to play many of the newer games that are on the market (I'm interested in purchasing Spore when it is released).
I don't have a large amount of money to spend on a notebook, and the configuration that I have chosen can be purchased for $684. I will for the most part be using it for schoolwork and that type of thing. Any information that anyone might provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
