Just bought a Toshiba Qosmio. $2500.
I was looking at the Dell XPS M170 for 2,000.00
I am confused. Some people say it is horrible, and others say it is the best thing. I want to play World of Warcraft and a an extremely smooth frame rate and no skipping. What specs am I looking for?
Processor Chip: 2.0 Ghz, 2.13 Ghz, or 2.26 Ghz? I want to play the game, but I also do not want to spend a fortune to do it.
Memory: 1 GB, or 2 GB. Would the 1 be fine or I would have to get 2? I also want to get a computer for listening to MP3's and put Pictures on. But I don't want to overspend. What would be acceptable?
Hard Drive: 60 GB 7200 RPM, 80 GB 7200 RPM, 100 GB 7200 RPM, or 120 GB 5400 RPM?
Intel Centrion Mobel Wireless? I guess this is for the wireless internet?: Intel Pro Wireless 2200, Intel Pro Wireless 2915, Blue tooth Intel Pro 2915 with Blue Tooth Technology, or Intel Pro 2200 with Blue Tooth Technology?
Would I need a wireless router? Keep in mind, I have bellsouth internet, so I guess I can just plug it into a port on a laptop if I get one. DO I need the Inten Centrion Moble Wirelss? and the Router? If so, which Router should I get?
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce Go 6800 Ultra or the Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 GTX?
Sound Card: Should I get one or get the one which comes with it?
Battery: Should I get an additional 9 Cell Lithium Ion Battery? Or just get the one that comes with it? Can I just plug the laptop into a wall and not use batteries?
Should I get a notebook Expansion Dock? Or do I really not need that?
DO I have to buy a mouse? Or do laptops come with one? Should I get Headphones? Or just live with the volume button?
Final Question: Is the Dell XPS M170 Laptop that good? I want to put quite a bit of photos, but some mp3's. About 100 or so, and be able to play World of Warcraft online. I also want to have World of Warcraft installed along with Zoo Tycoon 2 and Zoo Tycoon Expansion Pack.
Let me know how good or bad the Dell XPS M170 notebook is, and what specs would I need in each category for a good world of warcraft experience, please!!!!!
Thanks for all of the help, I know it is a lot, but I need opinions.
