laptop for the new year
Hi Guys- looking for a laptop. Trying to stay under $900. Mostly video editing ( home movies) , some gaming ( teenagers) BF2142, Starcraft , etc.... email, surfing, Want it to be functional for 3 years.
Found a Hp Dv7 at Sams for $799
- M600 Turion dual core ( 2.4 ghz)
- 500 GB ( 7200 rpm Sata) HHD
-win 7 premium
- ATI mobility 4650 ( M69) graphics card
- 4gb DDR2 ( unknown speed - assume 800)
Have been reading here and elsewhere that the dual core Toshiba and the Asus laptops are also good.
?? Should I just bite the bullet and get a I7 core ( over 1k) or will the dual cores ( amd/intel ) with a good graphics card ,etc. do the job for 2- 3years.
Thanks in advance
