Yea I guess. Your right. This was the first ever mobile computer device I have ever brought. Im more of a desktop kind of person. So since im outa the house more, I figure I wanted something that could be portable, and somewhat powerful, not looking to play games on high with graphics maxed out lol. Perhaps low-medium settings is fine. htwingnut I would like your opinion on this laptop that I brought yesterday from HP, its the HP G42t
What games? The HD 6370 is definitely better than the Intel GMA 4500MHD, but still not a powerhouse by any means. It will run latest WoW probably medium settings, and Starcraft 2 mostly medium, maybe some low.
Well, I guess my point is that you won't find anything too powerful under $650. Which is fine, depending on what games you want to play. For games like WoW, Starcraft 2, Modern Warfare, Source games, etc it should be fine. But for Crysis, Bad Company 2, etc it will struggle.
I would recommend asking in the "What notebook should I buy" forum here. You'll probably get lots of good suggestions there.
Way ahead of you buddy! I posted a thread on it. But I would prefer your opinion because you understand where I am coming from more than the others. We had the same netbook/notebook lol. I didn't realize laptops get outdated so fast!
