View Full Version : What do you think of this laptop?

I've been looking around for a really good laptop and my neighbor can get me a really good deal on this laptop, half price. I mainly need it for school. What do you guys think of it? Everything looks pretty solid to me except that I'm not familiar with the Pentium T3400. Is this a good cpu? I think the most demanding thing I'd do on it is playing movies.

Again, what do you guys think? Should I get it or no?

If all you want is to play movies and browse the interwebs, that would be perfectly fine. Gaming-wise, it will struggle. How much you getting it for?

You shouldnt have to pay more than 400-600.

Agreed it would be fine with a dual core 2.13GHz, although it will struggle with Blu ray moves if you wanted it to do that too.

Thanks for the quick responses guys. Yea I know the graphics chip is trash but I won't be using it for games. Got it for $400 today. I really like the design. Only thing I need to do is get rid of the bloated version of vista that is on here, as well as get a nice laptop bag.
