How is HP Compaq 6715b compared to this one

hotukdeals.com/dea…550

I am getting confused which is better Inter Core2Duo or Turion 64 X2 TL-60

I am basically after a laptop within range of 400-450

should have

Good processor
2 GB RAM
160 GB or more
Super DVD+/-RW with lightscribe
Bluetooth, Wireless
Modem, USB, Firewire, SVideo Out.

Plus I want to play games as well, not high end graphic but games like MS AoE
Help!

Core2Duo is the better of the two but the screen is much higher resolutuion on the 6715b. I think that is the better deal - its the one I bought.

Which one you bought, Fujitsu or HP 6715b

The 6715b

I see you can get the 6715b with either XP or Vista....I've read that Vista is very resources hungry so I think I would favour the XP machine.....any thoughts?

after 1st jan 08 I do not think you will have a choice, Vista will be the only option when buying a system with a m$ OS on it. if M$ can get away with it

How is the performance of AMD Turion™ 64 X2 compared to Core2Duo 7300 Santa Rosa.

What about graphics and playing games on both of them?

The intel chips are faster and use a more modern process in the manufacturing but the AMD ones are cheap. Both have more than enough power for average users - I only need one this powerful because I write .NET programs for a living. Laptops had enough power to fly through office, internet and emails for a few years now.

As for gaming you need to spend more, the integrated graphics on either of these machines isn't up to modern 3D gaming. For that you want a laptop with an Nvidia 8600GT.

thanks for your response Layzee, I don't want to play high end graphics what i am looking for is if it can play games like age of empires, strategy games, 2nd life

I've had this HP 6720s 2.GHz version for nearly 3 weeks now and I'm really happy with my purchase, fast processor, widescreen, easy to carry-light, battery life is good (but not upto 4.5 hours as it says in the description) and overall a sleek, good looking laptop. I'm also quite happy with windows vista and can't understand all the malarchy about it being worse than xp. I like the fact that I can put the laptop on sleep or hibernate if i wanna use it after an hour and not having to switch it off, also the gadgets are great, keeping me updated with underground trains and stuff like that. In a nutshell, a very happy customer.

can't beleive i missed the boat with the ebuyer one, its up to £555 now!
