By the way, I'm just gonna use it for basic word processing, web surfing, a little Real-time Strategy gaming, dreamweaver and stuff like that.
I'm buying a new laptop in Canada. I have limited budget (no more than $650 excluding tax).
I know there isn't much of good choice out there. Can someone please recommend me a good system that has:
2GB of RAM, best if 3GB
A Hard Drive with 5400rpm
relatively good processor (nothing like celeron)
Windows XP/Vista (not home basic)
Screen size no more than 15.4''
3 USB port or above
1 year warrenty
Decent graphic card (doesn't have to be dedicated)
I'm thinking of The Compaq CQ50-106CA (http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?sku_id=0665000FS10108457&catid=25315&logon=&langid=EN)
It's a decent laptop. I just want to know how good is the graphic and CPU performance.
Please tell me if there are better options.
