My wireless card no longer works. Only had laptop for about 8 months. Probably buy a new one rather than send it in.

funnily enough, I briefly had a Compaq with very similar specs (maybe same model) I owned it for about a week before I returned it, it kept crapping out on me.

Edit: how do your PC's perform with games?

The laptop runs pretty good for what I do with it.  The wireless card is easy to replace.  Compaq told me that the some of the v6000 were shipped with faulty cards.  When I went to buy the laptop I wanted one with windows vista because I really like it.  I really needed a new laptop at the time because my old hp laptop kept overheating and melted the cooling fan I had underneath it.  The store only had a few laptops with Vista so I chose this one.  I don't do a whole lot.  I mainly use my laptop for surfing the internet and as a media server for the ps3.

The laptop does well for the games that I play.  I don't play any games that are too demanding.  Most of my pc gaming involves Tomb Raider Anniversary, Tomb Raider Legend, and Madden.  I prefer madden on pc.   Probably would run a little smoother with a little more ram.  I'll probably upgrade to 2gb ram soon.



Consoles owned: 80GB PS3 w/bc, PS3 Slim 120gb
PSN: Yubitme        

I got mine almost 2 years ago at the cost of about 3 PS3s:

I have a:

Core2Duo 2.2 GHz o.c to 2.93GHz
2GB RAM
2 HDD combined total of 820GB
ATI Radeon x1950PRO 256MB Graphics card
19in LCD Monitor

With that rig I can pretty much play any current game (Crysis at medium) and with asimple exchange of GFX cards for about £120 in 6 month's time I can upgrade it to play all the games for the next 2 years if need be.



PSN ID: T_Gears

End of 2009 ltd sales:

Wii = 67-68m

X360 = 38-39m

PS3 = 34-35m

Prediction: The PS3 will surpass the 360 on weekly sales after it drops to $299 on all regular weeks (no big releases).

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (3.0GHz Clock Speed, 1MB L2 Cache)
ATi Radeon X1950 PRO
2GB DDR2-667

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS AMD64 / Windows Vista x86



Lets see:

- AMD Phenom Quad-core @ 2.66Ghz. (Quad-core @ 2.66 is faster then Dual-core @ 3.00 I believe).

- 3Ghz RAM.

- Nvidia GeForce 8800GT. (Was a 8500GT but upgraded it to 8800GT).

- 750GB HDD (0.75TB HDD)... Not including External 500GB HDD.

 

Can run games like Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty 4, Mass Effect no problem.
