Gaming laptop suggestion? (not Alienware this time)
#1
Hi, i've been a long time PC user & about to change over to MAC. So i dunno if this should go in PC or MAC forum...

Been looking at several laptops from Powernotebooks.com & found the Sagers have some good specs. They use the same mobos as many of the Alienware & Dell gaming setups. The Sager NP2096 has good specs for about $780. Specs:
T6400 (2.0GHz, 35W-45nm) w/2MB L2 Cache – 800MHz FSB
nVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT w/512MB GDDR2
4GB DDR2/800MHz

I don't want anyone to do my homework, but do you have suggestions on a gaming laptop? Processor speed & graphics card are of course the most important.

i'm also going to run MAC on there, so it would be sweet to also run PCSX2.

This really should be in off topic, since it doesn't have much to do with PCSX2. Systems that are faster in general do better with PCSX2. Only things you need to know for PCSX2 is CPU matters more than anything else, and Intel does better than AMD.

Regardless, Asus and MSI sell some nice (Though not customizable) laptops for pretty competitive prices. Here's a 16" Asus with a slightly higher res screen, same proc, comparable (?) gfx, though with more RAM (edit: Graphics memory, that is), for about the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6834220520. Also has a better warranty (2 years plus one year of accidental damage protection vs 1 year, no accidental damage). The Asus is actually a little lighter than the Sager, too, though it is larger, obviously. Unfortunate that the Asus only has 32-bit Vista, since it has 4 GB RAM, but still, not a bad deal.

Neither. Moved to the Chatterbox, where it belongs. Smile

The mac port of Pcsx2 barely works, and by barely I mean not at all really. So don't get too excited at the prospect.

I'm quite satisfied with the one I got (almost 2 years old now, Znote 6224w).

This isn't trying to start a flame war or anything, but why would you want a Mac for a gaming laptop?

Because Mac has a good looking outfit, and it's well-known.
But T6400 is not good enough for Pcsx2, I suggest for 2,4Ghz or higher clock
