Dell Laptop with good graphics

13
Found 2nd Sep 2007
My next door neighbour is after a good laptop to play films on when he is away offshore, max screen size would be 15.4 and he really wants it to watch films etc so quite a bit of HD would be good.

Would the Vostro 1000 from Dell be good enough or would a better one be better?

Iv told him about my dell one and he seems really happy about getting one from there, he has around £500 to play with :thumbsup:

Looks good Chris, i have the Vistro 1000 (dell) does that have a good enough graphics card for video mate?

there's an extra we green block for your help lol

The Graphics in the vostro isnt that good.

I lag on shockwave games.. But its not for gaming so ya.

I spent twenty minutes between this window and an MSN chat writing a post, and ****ing IE7 swallowed it. Grr. Angryface.

The gist of what I said before, then: Yeah, go for it, buy the £380 one (worth it as it has double the CPU power, memory, and disk space), upgrade it to the biggest battery, do it by phone and haggle for freebies and a discount (and if they're stubborn, hang up and try again with someone else).


The system will handle DVDs nicely, especially with its wide screen. I can't assure you that it'll do HD movies perfectly as the graphics chip is a bit weak, but the CPU should be more than powerful enough to cope. It won't be much good for flashy 3D games though, but he'd probably be looking at sinking a couple more hundred into a system with a half-decent graphics chip for gaming, which I guess mightn't be worth doing.

which one were you saying for my neighbour to get? the one i got, the vstro 1000? :?

thanks

Aye, the Vostro 1000. There's three different versions of it on the ]page, but the third one along (£300 before VAT and shipping) is the one to go for. The one with this under it:

VostroTM 1000 Faster Processor with 2 GB Memory & 120GB Storage for … VostroTM 1000 Faster Processor with 2 GB Memory & 120GB Storage for Increased Productivity





Oh, and an extra buying tip in just a minute, check your PMs.

Have a look at this thread http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94466&page=7&highlight=laptop which works out at £433 with all discounts. Better value for money in my opinion and Dell are suffering terrible delays at the moment.
