looking to get a laptop at the end of the yr, hence doing research now.
just checking. i am wondering how impt is it to get a dedicated graphics card(ati x1300 128mb/256mb with Hypermemory) for a laptop?
I DO NOT game at all. my uses are photoshop cs2, and microsoft office, watching movies/mp3s, maybe some programming for my university final yr project.
currently looking at the Dells (seem to be most value for money), below is my ideal config:
1. Duo Core 2.0ghz 4mb cache
2. 2 x 1024mb ddr2 ram
3. 120gb hdd (prob allocate like 20gb to scratch disk for photoshop)
3. 14.1" widescreen
the thing about dell is, it offers both this ATI card as well as the Intel integrated card.
So what do u guys reckon, taking into account my usage pattern? or if u guys have any recommendations, pls feel free to list them as well.
thanks in advance
