I think I just found my answer in another usefull thread found on these forums
I am currently in the market for a laptop (and have been for the past two weeks). I've seen what many companies have to offer (Dell, toshiba, hp, compaq, Acer)... the abundance of choice has gotten me no where nearer to making a decision.
The laptop will be used for school and for the occasional 3D game. Price is not a main issue, but I'd like to get the most performance for my dollar.
My first concern is the processor. I realise the battery, weight and heating advantages that the MProcessor 725(1.6GHz) will have over say, a p4 3.0 GHZ with HT. But my question is: to what extent will the p4 out-perform the 725 (at the price of battery life and weight). Also, what avantages would a p4 3.0 with HT have over a p4 3.06?
And from what I've gathered from these forums... Dedicated video ram is absolutely necessary to even consider playing 3d games on a laptop. (unless I am mistaken).
To give you an idea of what I've been looking at...
Any replies will be greatly appreciated!!!
