    Is $600 a good price for a Precision M70? The laptop is a used off of lease return in good shape but I have heard great things about this computer. I would be using it for moderate gaming, so if anybody has any experience with this model please let me know.

    Here are the specs for those unfamiliar with the model:

    2 GHz Pentium M
    1 GB ram (will likely upgrade)
    60 GB HD
    nVidia Quadro FX Go1400
    15.4" LCD screen

    $600 for a refurbished Dell with not so good specs...

    If I were you I'd spend a bit more $$ and get something brand new. Refurbished can be bad news as it is, Dell is also not the best quality in the world, put those two together and you can have a disaster. Also the specs are not that great to justify buying a refurbished notebook for $600 :/

    Pentium M is old, small HD, crappy vid card :/

    just my opinion

    You could probably get a 1.5 GHz C2D, 1 GB RAM, and 120 GB HD with an 8400M GS for about $600-700...

    Not really worth it.

    Is the 8400M GS better than the Quadro FX Go1400? Notebookcheck.net rates the 8400M GS kinda low.

    I am also looking at an Inspiron 9300 with nVidia Go 6800 for the same price. I am leaning more towards that one because it has a bigger display and better card (I hear).
