    New Laptop!

    I need some advice you guys. I saved up about 600 dollars for a new laptop (old one broke) and I don't really no anything about laptops (my mom bought my last one). I was hoping you guys can recommend me one.
    I'm pretty much going to use it for web-surfing, word processing, some simple editing of movies and photos, and some light gaming. It has to be light & slim since I travel a lot.

    I'm selling a Sony Vaio on eBay... I would tell you to buy it, but, it's broken. xD

    Sony Vaios are realy good, so are Macs.

    Here, I made this to your needs, it should be able to handle light gaming, well, maybe medium-gaming. So here it is. Under $600! I customized it myself to what I would think you like.

    My cheap ass graphics card is capable of playing heavy games of warcraft 3, which is abuot medium-gaming, heavy gaming is like all settings with F.E.A.R. and i know that graphics card is better than mine.

    whats your graphics card?? is it o a desktop? if it is then it's better because integrated ones use the cpu to make the graphics, and share system ram etc. it's especially bad on a lappy because they normally don't have very good procs

    Thanks Sovieto, I just might look into it.
    But does anyone know where I can get a cheap macbook or a used one for 600 dollars or under. Because I heard that you can have both Mac OSX and windows xp on it at the same time and that would really help me.

    Laptop problem solved!

    Ok, I couldn't find a low priced macbook so I'm going to buy the Dell laptop that Sovieto customized. The specs are perfect for what I'm going to do with it, so laptop problem solved. I guess you can used the thread for talking about laptops or desktops or whatever.
    Peace!

    Cool, I think I am going to be getting a Lapy soon. I was thining the 12" Dell XPS withthe 256 MB Video card. I use Macs at home for doing audio work but I am going to be using the laptop really just for surfing, word proc, lots of gaming, and VERY little Audio Editing as I hate doing real work on PCs.
