Every gamer on any laptop has bemoaned the laptop.
While you can get decent performance (define that?) with an 128MB Dedicated 9700 or better video card, and bump up the hard disk RPMs so it's not as sluggish the desktop wins on lag and more.
Don't be delusional. It's a compromise and may result in a hot, heavy laptop with no battery life.
Outside of gaming, the other items look easy.
Ok, so im going to buy a Hp ZD8000 is this notebook good for running games like half life 2 and doom 3. Whats specs would you look for if you were going to get a notebook where you could play them kinda games?
Also what notebooks would you say were good for gaming, multimedia, picture editing and and editing movies?
