does anyone know a laptop with a pretty good graphics card with a screen thats 15.4 inch?

the inspiron 9300 is really good but i think its to bulky to carry around, not really my type. Sad

I can't say I've run into a namebrand laptop with a video card that I would dismiss as not able to meet your requirements.

the games i want to run are like , counter strike source and bf2.

the cards that ive come across that suit my liking are: the geforce 6600Go and ati mobility x700. but the video card i really like is of course the nvidia 6800GO but the laptops that have that graphics card have a very big screen, 17INCH.

is there a laptop with the 6800GO but with a 15.4inch screen?

all of the notebooks i have seen with a 6600 or a 6800 so far have a 17inch screen. i thought i saw one 15.4 but it was 14lb. i think. my recomendation is get a desktop for that preformance. but if u realy realy want to get a gamming notebook dont expect to carry it much. my recomendation for a notebook is the 9300 its the lightest out of the pcs with 6600-6800 cardes and enjoy the 17inch (make sure to get the truebright and the high res). also i bealive dell has a 6800ultra in there 9300 go for it it looks ausome! p.s. u might want to buy a laptop cooler thing the 9300 MUST be hot.

Dell sells only online but offer mall kiosks for trying them

In reply to: reply

Yes, Dell has achieved its success by selling only over the internet (so no money is paid to retailers) and also by having very small supplies of components on hand (thus saving storage costs and also not getting stuck with out of date components).

HP/Compaq is trying to figure out how to adapt to the Dell model but no other company has replicated it so far.

Dell desktops are top notch but their notebooks while in the mix are not at the level as the desktops which are often assembled in the US.

The consumer Dell support is overseas and the assemby of the notebooks is in China by contract manufacturers just as HP/Compaq and most other notebook companies are (and Lenovo now has bought IBM's computer division so they are in China on all levels).

You can visit a Dell kiosk in a mall to try out the notebooks. Dell was in Costco in the 1990's for awhile but again Dell finds the profit margins better selling exclusively online.

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?
