I think this is the ATi Mobility Radeon X1500 on Asus systems. Asus make good quality laptops but they are more concentrate in Europe.
Acer has on certain model the old ATi Mobility Radeon X700. But the after-sale service and the quality-built isn't as good as Dell or HP.
For Dell, this is the ATi Mobility Radeon X1400 that I have in my E1505 / 6400. HP has the same but on the nVIDIA side, the Geforce Go 7400.
Core Duo is a very good processor. Better than the AMD Turion 64 X2. I saw on the HP website that the GPU for the AMD Turion X2 is an integrated nVIDIA when you can get a Go 7400...
If you really want to play, a 17" will be better. I think to the Dell Inspiron E1705 / 9400 and the Toshiba P105 with the GeForce Go 7900 GS.
I just wanna know what the best video card available is in a 15.4" widescreen laptop is, and what laptop manufacturers offer it.
I know nVidia and ATI make some pretty beefy video cards, however some are only available in the 17" notebooks. What's the best in 15.4"? (by the way, it has to have the intel core duo cpu, unless you can argue a better processor)
Also, should I expect to see any better video cards on the market come end of July into August?
Thanks for the help guys,
