There are very few mainstream AMD 64 notebooks out there yet (Dell does not sell AMD cpus at all).

HP and Compaq sell an AMD Athlon 64 notebook each and they have some good discounts and they can be fully customized. But they max out at 64mb dedicated video RAM (Nvidia)

Check out the E-machines at Best Buy - model M6811 (online also but not customizable) as it has the ATI 9600 64mb dedicated video.

Neither has 128mb dedicated video, however.

Beware smaller laptop suppliers.

History is littered with people who bought the lesser names and found they had no spare parts and dismal repair options. Some would send in the machine and wait months.

Sadly, history repeats itself since many have to learn this lesson on their own.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
