Well my previous laptop, after a string of problems, had it's last run two weeks ago. It already had screen issues (colour bands appearing and lots of flickering), but the HDD gave away and the motherboard failed too.
I took that chance to invest on a new laptop (and sold my previous one for parts). It was a good laptop, an Asus N50v, with a T9600 Dual Core 2 Duo, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, geforce GT 9650m 1 gb GDDR3, 320 GB HDD, so it still fetched a good price as scrap.
The laptop that I've bought now is a HP dv6-6060ep. It specifications are as follows:
- Intel Core i7-2310QM (2.00 GHz, 6 MB cache L3)
- 6 GB DDR3, upgradable to 8 GB
- 500 GB SATA 7200 RPM
- AMD Radeon HD 6770M (1 GB GDDR5)
- 15,4" 1366x768 resolution
So, what do you think about this new laptop? I've heard it performs quite well in every game currently released (and that's a major plus for me, since i'm gunning for a good performance when Skyrim arrives). Also it's price wasn't that high, considering it's specifications, only 940 Eur.
