The price sounds just too good for the config!
I would really prefer the external DvD Drive and yeah 32k is a awesome deal, where did ya buy it from?

Well performace will be great now as it is completely new, give it some time on the internet hehe

If you can, add another gig of ram and you will live happily ever after..(for another 1 year for sure lo l)

not true at all. there are intel gaming pc's too.

Asus G1S and G2S are excellent examples of Intel gaming pc's.

and amd does come with gpu's but are they strong enough to play NFS carbon?

My amd athlon is paired with ATI Xpress200m and it has trouble running NFS u2 at full settings.

Default Time to upgrade lappy!

Guys i have 2 laptops. LG and Dell. Thinking of disposing off LG laptop and getting a Compaq.

LG config is:
Celeron 1.3, 512 MB, Cd writer / DVD rom, 15' screen, 40 GB hdd.

Now i went to check out compaq laptops today. I liked 2 - 3 laptops from their range (all AMD's though). Now i have some questions regarding it.

Compaq Presario V6600 Notebook PC series Products & Services
I liked both the laptops in the above series:
V6604AU and V6608AU

Now V6604AU has AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TK-55 & V6608AU AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58.

Whats the difference between these processors and which one is better to get ?

Second option is V3611AU
Compaq Presario V3611AU Notebook PC (GU020PA) specifications - HP Products & Services products

I will upgrade the memory to 1GB if the laptop has 512 and 2Gb if the laptop has 1GB pre installed. Not worried about getting pre installed windows and either ways i dont like Vista so i will install XP ASAP.

Also how much should i sell my LG (korean crap) for

Go in for Turion X2 (2 x 512KB Cache). It is better than Athlon X2 (2 x 256KB Cache).

If you let us know your budget, we can suggest something better.

Ok just purchased Compaq F700

Config as follow:
1 GB RAM HP
1.9 Ghz X2 512 KB cache
DVD writer
1.3 megapixel camera with microphone inbuilt
120 Gb hDD
HD Audio and Video
Wifi
MMC reader etc DVD writer

Also went to check Acre 4520. It was good but compaq ppl gave me a good deal.

Pros over Acer 4520:
15" display
got a better Processor 10 MHZ more LOL
1.3 mega pixel inbuilt camera and mic

cons compared to acer:
no bluetooth. not a problem as i have a dongle but they could have given it lol
no windows pre installed. not a con for me coz i like XP and hate VISTA
no one touch buttons

But overall i got 1 year insurance with compaq + they took my old laptop for 9k where as acer guys were giving no more than 6K

Paid 31k (22k in cash and 9k as in old laptop), build i feel Compaq is same as acer didn't feel any difference but Compaq demo model was also silent and cooler then Acer though.

Weighs 2.8 KG's i think.

How is the Acer Aspire 4920 @ 43k?? Is this a good lap top and at a good price point?

I have very basic layman knowledge about computers .. and I need to buy one immediately. I am looking at this or the Dell XPS 1330(looks very good - though the specs seem lower)

I was wondering how the Tablet that Viper bought compares to these two.
