Hey, this is my first post and I hope that I can get some good help on these forums. Anyways, I am looking to buy a laptop now. It is going to be used for gaming, school work, and things like that. I am looking to spend up to $1500 if at all possible.
Specs that I would like:
2.0+ ghz processor
256+ mb ran (expandible to 1 gb)
64+ mb radeon or nvidia based graphics card
Those are the three main things that really need to be included. Obviously with those kinds of specs, I am not going to be able to buy most computers like Dell, Ibuypower, and Alienware. I have been looking at sits like Tiget Direct
, New Egg
, Refurb Depot
, and Overstock
. I have seen some good systems, but not exactley what I want.
What I want to know are a few things:
1) Can video cards be replaced on laptops? How hard is it to do?
2) Do you know of any sites that sell notebooks for cheap?
3) Any other suggestions on buying a notebook?
If my questions seem novice-like it is because I do not have much experience with laptops. I hope this will change soon though. Thanks in advance.
