Is this Dell model good at emulating pcsx2?
#1
Hello,
I am planning to buy this Dell model after one month.
It's Dell Inspiron 15-3537 Intel i7-4500U 1.8GHz

But I wonder will it do good at pcsx2 anyway?
I currently have a TOSHIBA notebook with Intel i3-M 380 2.5GHz.

Well, which is better that Dell's i7 or my current TOSHIBA's i3 at emulating pcsx2?

The dell will be better, but it's not that great for pcsx2 either.

I see a TOSHIBA one with an i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz but the problem is not a touch-screen one.
I want a touch-screen one and the Dell one has a touch screen but the damn problem is that its CPU as you can see is 1.8GHz.
Well, is the Dell CPU one much worse than the TOSHIBA i7-4700 2.4GHz one at emulating pcsx2?

Is there a REALLY big difference between these two or not that much either?

The touch-screen laptop is more important to me than a non-touch one.

i7 4700MQ is a the highend of intel traditional laptop processors it is meant for full fledged laptops. the i7-4500U is meant for ultrabooks so it meant to not be a workhorse if you want batter performance stay away from ultrabooks or intel CPUs that have Ix-4xxxU as a pruduct model number

Well,
So which is better?
a Touch-Screen Envy HP with 16 GB RAM and i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz

And that Dell I mentioned.

But many people advised me to stay away from HP laptops, I wonder why?

That's why I am thinking of buying the Dell one although it's worse than the HP one compared to the CPU.

A computer is nothing more than the sum of its parts, plus some added bloatware. They both won't get you too far, but 2.4 ghz is better than 1.8.

Well, one last question if you don't mind?
Do you have any idea about that HP?
Does it have problems or anything like that?
If not, I think I will have to save more money for it.

And another question please, and this is my last question on this post because it's the question that puzzles me between the HP and the Dell although I have a real slim PS2 that can run that game at the actual speed and even faster then a 4 GHz desktop (Running a game on a real PS2 Laugh of course how will it run?! Smile

The game (Dragon Quest 8)
How will it run on the HP i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz and on that Dell 1.8GHz?
Will it run on playable speed on either of them? If not, then none of the models are better than the other in my mind, and then I will go for the Dell one since it's cheaper.

NOTE (I didn't say will it run at fast, full speed, I only SAID a REASONABLE and PLAYABLE speed so that I am able to at least play the game when the PS2 system is not present.)

The 2.4ghz 'should' be able to run it full speed at native res.
