planning for a new lappy
i'm planning to get this lappy that's about $760

Intel Core i3 330M (2.13Ghz)
Mobile Intel HM55 chipset
2GB DDR3 Memory
Nvidia Nforce 310M (512Mb)
14.1 WXGA TFT (1280 x 800)
320GB SATA Hard drive
Acer Crystal Eye Webcam
Dolby Digital Surround

but the main concern is that GPU did'nt issued the latest nvidia drivers yet.

Nice lappy although I would do a good research before buying it.
Cpu seems weak, although I don't know if those use Turbo Boost.
2GB of memory when everything is having 4GB this days.
If it's an Nforce 310M, it must be an integrated card, so don't expect miracles from it, although at least is not an Intel gma. Tongue2

I have an Asus G50VT-X1 so I recommend Asus laptops for gaming.
P8400 at 2.5ghz Asus Overclocked.
Nvidia 9800gs 512MB
Res is 1366*768

Now there are better configurations but always check the graphics card, is one of the most important aspects in a gaming laptop. You always see those great cpus but paired with integrated cards.

First state what are you planning to use it for?

With my laptop, I can use pcsx2 and have beaten a lot of games with it.
I just recently bought my laptop. It works great. No driver problems with my 230M. PCSX2 has worked better than I expected. I wouldn't suggest one of the new "Core i" processors for the best (or better, I should say) results with PCSX2, unless your getting one of the best ones and/or overclocking. I would think you could find a laptop with something like a 2.53Ghz or 2.66Ghz Core 2 Duo and a decent nVidia or ATI graphics card with 512mb or 1gb video RAM (dedicated) in that price range. For $800 or less, you might end up with a 14" screen, but that's what they call "quid pro quo".

Another thing, I've read that the second digit in a GPU (i.e. a GeForce 310M would be the "1") can indicated a lot more than you might realize. I believe it was something along the lines of a 1, 2 and maybe even 3 would almost certainly be integrated (Sad). Higher numbers most likely dedicated (Smile). I think I've seen talk of a 8800 being better than a 9600. I also think a 310M would be worse than a 230M. I think.

BTW This is a pretty good deal. Processor could be better, but the graphics card is good. It's a ASUS G71GX-RX05 on Has a P8700 2.53Ghz Core 2 Duo with a GeForce GTX 260M (1gb GDDR3 video RAM) and 6gb system RAM. Not that system RAM really matters for PCSX2 so much. Any laptop in that range you buy will most definitely be fine for RAM (2gb is enough), but 6gb is just cool Smile. A 17" screen, too.
