Well to cut a short story shorter, I ordered a laptop from dell. Lovely specs, fantastic processor(p8600), 4gb 800mhz ram, 500gb hard drive, blu-ray, backlit keyboard, 1920x1200 screen, etc etc for the paltry sum of £650.
However I have gotten cold feet in regards the deal for the following reasons:
Some say that the HDMI cannot carry audio
the graphics card is the ATI 3450 256mb. It seems just on the wrong side of to weak and I dont think you can upgrade laptop graphics cards? I only wish to play BF2 and CS-S but I dont think it will cut the mustard especially at any sort of resolution.
The battery life seems to be very low. Now im not going on extended trips, but if it dosent last me 1.5-2hrs then its no good for watching a film when in the car. Ive had a look for batteries for it but cant find any :(
So, I thought, lets just email Dell and cancel my order. The person refused to do it, saying it was "locked" and that the only thing I can do is wait for it to be delivered then return it.
Is there ANY way round this? Many thanks
