My parents, as i had told, just bought a Toshiba laptop for $899, about 2 months ago...
Well my father wanted a new laptop for photo editing, so he went to Future Shop, and looked for a large-screen powerful laptop. And yes, i steered him into AMD's direction for once
. There was an Intel with dual-core, but the battery life was rediculous. 2 HRS total, and this one is 5 hours total.
This was the laptop that was purchased:
HP Pavilion DV8220
AMD Turion 64 ML-37 2.0 Ghz, 1MB cache, 1600 mhz FSB.
512MB RAM -> Doubled to 1GB.
160GB HD (2 80GB, 1 8GB for recovery)
17" Widescreen (its nice)
6-in-1 card reader
Lots of HP crap installed.
Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pro...gon=&langid=EN
Also had a free printer, after mail-in-rebate. So now i have a printer, pretty awesome! HP Deskjet 5440...
What do you think of the new laptop?
EDIT - Installed Microsoft Digital Image Suite instead. Does same things.
Also, is AMD turion a good processor? I dunno, its AMD...so you guys must have an opinion on it.
