Would definitely be worth buying an extra 512mb slot of RAM separately to compensate for the amount that will be chilling out in your graphics card's Hypermemory.

Depends on what use your making of the laptop, I posted the alternative for those who are looking for a lower cost unit and maybe they wont be trying to do graphics intense stuff on it so would like the extra price drop.
Lots ask me for laptops just so they caan be wifi around the house to surf while with the family rather than stuck in a corner or seperate room, they just want to share ;-)

hi i am new to ukhd have been watching dell lappy prices for a while as i am looking to get one. wondering if you could advise me either to go with a amd or intel processor in a 6400 main uses web browseing , watching dvd ,music very small chance of using for gaming .is there much speed /performance difference between them ??

thanks
[mod]#5
If its an Inspiron 6400 your looking at then it will be either an Intel core duo or a core 2 duo CPU. My advice would be core 2 duo, its only around 10% faster but it will hold resale value better for when you wish to upgrade.

Welcome to the forums saladdodger :)

sorry ment looking at 6400 and 1501 models want to stick ina budget of £550 max just wondered if there would be a major difference between what the processors can handle . its my first lappy but may even go for new desktop cause mine is 3 yo and getting slooooooow
[mod]#7
saladdodger, see if you can find any reviews on line for the 1501 inspirons. I have not had any through my hands yet so cant comment on them. Used plenty of the 6400's though and they are nice units with core duo or the slightly faster (10%) Core 2 duo cpu's

thanks mike cant find any decent reviews but deffo going for intel chip i will strike them soon trying the phone route to haggle againt a previous deal i saw here. one Q when i add vista upgrade it says there is a issue with it and the x1300 ati gpu ???? know why this is
#9
Can anyone advise on the gaming capabilities of these laptops, is it any good when its uma/inbuilt graphics, lets say If I wanted to play GTA Vice City or Lego Star wars is this possible with these laptops as I thought a dedicated graphics card was what you need for a Desktop, how about laptops?

I dont know for sure as Dell havnt been kind enough to let us know, just warn us. I guess the X1300 and a particular screen res dont run vista well, you would have to contact Dell to find out for sure.

The Intel on board graphics is good enough for Far cry with reduced eye candy from the I1300 through to the I6400. I have a 1.66 core2duo 640M atm and that plays the game fine. Sorry cant help further as I'm not really a gamer.

I have a 6400 with an x1300 and I've just upgraded to Vista Ultimate with no problems. There is a recommended BIOS update to do for my model, but it is very painless.

I should probably add I have the Core Duo 1.66 (not Core 2 Duo) and 2gb of RAM.

As for gaming, my little x1300 with 64mb (+system ram) runs World of Warcraft, Battlefield Vietnam, Company of Heroes and Lego Star Wars fine. I think having 2gb of ram does help support the x1300 though.

Thanks for that useful game info lilison, of course 2gb of ram will always help as the graphics card steals some system ram as needed leaving less for the os to play with.
