Laptop Specification


#1

I want to buy a new laptop .. & get rid of my current Acer Aspire 1640.

Following is my preferred minimum specification:

Screen Size = 15"

Hardisk = 160 GB

RAM = 1GB or 2 GB

OS = Windows VISTA

CD/DVD = DVD-Writer

I want to know which is the better processor?

Secondly; I am from Karachi/Hyderabad but residing in Islamabad at the moment. Any Idea from where I can get a good laptop? Which is the better shop to make a deal with?

Go for Intel Core 2 Duo processor and if you are planning to use VISTA then you must upgrade your RAM to 2 GB otherwise it will be slow.

Yes I’ll probably go for 2 to 4 GB … not on 1 GB.

2 GB is the new minimum for Vista. I have 2 GB on my Vista laptop, and despite a clean install, it's still not as spiffy as XP.

With a Core 2 & 1-2 GB Ram, XP is super fast, while Vista is OK.

Do NOT go for 4 GB, because Vista only detects max of 3 GB, so go with 3 GB instead…if you want to use 4 GB then you need Vista 64bit

If u r a frequent gamer… its better to select a lappy with higher resolution:

WXGA - 1280x800 (the minimum standard resolution for a 15.4’’, i have a lappy with dis resolution nd I ain’t very much stasisfied with the results…)

Try to have

WSXGA (1440x900)

or WSXGA+ (1680x1050)

WUXGA (1920x1200)

Higher resolution results in less eye burden, try to have at least WSXGA, if not WSXGA+.
