  • Need advice on a laptop to buy.

    Yo all

    Im heading to uni in a few months so i need some help selecting a laptop. Obviously price is key, so cheaper the better. Im used to my home system of E6400 core 2 processor, 2gb ram and Nvidia 8500gt. So i wondered if anyone could link me to a laptop with those similar specs. I just want to be able to do thinks fast and the only game i need to be able to play is world of warcraft . Maybe i dont need such a fast processor as i have seen that 2ghz + can get price.

    I do not really need a hardrive at all as i got 2 external ones, dont need an Operating system.

    Budget: 450 pounds.

    Would be great if anyone could link me to any laptops that im looking for on aria . Thanks

            Eee's are horrible to type on, they are lovely and portible but keys are tiny.

              i must admit that they are a bit too tiny for most people inc myself which is why mines being sold.

              but for younger people or those that are vertically challenged with small hands there ideal.

                Put a DVD case in front of you and imagine it's a keyboard, if you can't type on it, you probably won't like an Eee. (Check for yourself, a DVD case is about 9" diagonal - and an eee keyboard is barely wider than the screen)

                      BTW -that laptop would most likely be faster than your PC... just for comparison.

                      More RAM running faster, a faster processor and a fairly equivalent graphics card (mobile graphics are always a bit naff)... you'll be fine with that
