Mike, I don't suppose you know what Graphics card is in the N056M2 do you?

Either I'm blind (quite likely) or it isn't stated.

Your not blind, it doesnt have one, its onboard graphics only. Having said that its quite good, I have a 640M and play far cry on it without having to remove too much eye candy.
The problem with small laptops and graphics cards is that everyone wants the batteries to last 2hrs+ and sticking a big graphics card load in there kills the batteries quickly, so makers go for a compromise unless you are looking at desktop replacements with 17" screens that you couldnt carry for 10mins without getting longer arms ;-)

If your uses are as you say then the earlier posting will do you fine, these later 3 have better cpu's but you wont need the power advantage they give.

Hot as hell there Mike, sweet.

Quick question though, can you get the 305-N05647a with XP, and with a decent nvidia physical memory'ed gpx card?

Thanks

None of the above are available with XP, maybe they would if you phoned your order though.
#9
Nvidia at all?

These don't seem to give you the option other than the x1400 HM

Thanks again MIke

According to some reviews the radeon X1400 beats the Nvidia 7300 (which is an inferior/underclocked version of the Nvidia 7400). The notebookcheck's mobile graphics comparison ranks the X1400 as high on the tier 3 performance class, whereas the 7300 comes mid way in performance class 4.

Looks like dell screwed the prices up.

Very interesting, thanks for that. My question with regards that though, is are they proper cards with their own memory, or tubo cache, hypermemory style.

With 2 gb of ram thoug, would the performace hit be noticable?


Cheers

I hate to say this but you guys dont help yourselves very much ;-)

If you start to build your dell when you get to the graphics card choice you will see a ? with a blue "learn more" next to it, click on that and all the info you require will be at your disposal.
You can also get some info on mobile graphics cards and CPU's from the sidebar links in my blog.

The turbocache/hypermemory (which are like hybrid cards with a little dedicated and mucho shared memory) are the max performance cards available on the 6400, you'll have to go with the XPS or 9400 models for anything better (dedicated graphics cards). Cheapest I could find were a 9400 with a 256MB Nvidia 7900 for £773, the XPS are at £1000+, ouch.

The thing I'd like for now is a cheap budget machine:

Decent dual core 1.66Mhz and 1MB cache
RAM: 512MB
HD: 40GB (cheap external HDs are the win)
Graphics: Radeon Xpress 1150 OR Radeon X1400 if price is right
Screen: 15.4" 1280x800 truelife
Price range: £350 - 400

Once my loans are all paid off, I'll go for a pimped up XPS. :thumbsup:

anyone tell me how this compares with the above laptop?

I thought the Turion TL52 came with cache memory of 2X512kB (1MB).

I found this dell 9400 for £705 (I'm sure MikeT can find a better deal), which has a far better processor, the Core 2 Duo T5200 (1.83GHz, 2MB cache). It comes with the Radeon X1400 which, if you follow the links in my previous post, is a superior graphics card to the Nvidia 7300. Although it's more expensive the better processor is worth it IMO.
