I`m going to buy a new laptop, because the Inspiron 1501, has inspired me for 2 years, and I want a piece of fresh hardware.. So, I`m up to 2 choices - F3Ka and A210-16F. They`re exactly the same, only the processors are different - AMD Turion X2 TL-60 for F3Ka and TL-58 in the Toshiba. I wanna play games, even on Low details, doesn`t matter so much.. Assassin's Creed, Gears Of War, Call Of Duty 4, NFS Pro Street, Crysis... I believe Crysis will be well playable only on Low settings, but I don`t know. I want to know what settings, I`m going to be stuck (as I said - doesn`t matter so much).. Which notebook has the better build quality, screen etc. The price is the same. In Bulgaria they`re both 1250 leva, which is about 890 dollars. Also can I install XP on them? Cause they come with Vista Home Premium. Another option is MSI GX610.. Which I believe has ddr3 HD2600, again with TL-58, but 250GB harddisk, against 160GB in the previous two. Is is worth the 150 leva (100 bucks) over the Toshiba and Asus?
Sorry if I have mistakes, English is not my native language.
From what I can see...the MSI would be my pick. The GDDR3 version of the HD2600 give you alot more head room for OC'ing which is pretty straight forward for the HD2600. Gives you a nice performance boast.
