Duo Core laptop?

Found 18th Oct 2006
Are there any Duo Core laptop deals out there? Not worried about RAM or HD size (as will upgrade it myself) but the graphics card must have DVI output.

I've mentioned the following laptop so often I deserve to be on commission!
Not to mention coming to the aid of many of their worried customers having bought one myself.

The price has gone up slightly in the last week but apparently the postage charge has been reduced. Also, there is still a painful 5 week waiting list and regardless of this THEY WILL debit your card pretty much as soon as you place the order - Which I frown upon.

It has the DVI (via 256mb ATI X1600) and Dual Core you require and I can assure you an installing an additional 512mb of RAM will give you a considerable performance boost allowing the usual suspects (Doom 3/Half-Life 2/GTR2/Company of Heroes) to typically run at high settings.


What do you intend on using the unit for out of curiousity?
Wait a couple of weeks for a Windows Vista coupon before buying :thumbsup:

£675 - eBay - can point you to the seller. I got 2 of these for friends and they recieved them as described etc.

Remember the graphics card must have DVI output.

The Dell Ins 6400 doesnt have.
new to laptops mike what do you think about the acer good or bad for that price.has this have a DVI output,and please excuse me asking what difference does it make thanks.
Ah yeah i missed that. sorry.
Thanks for the replies. Bugdet is up to £1k but around £700 would be best.

I'll read your replies and maybe ask again.


p.s. It's for a friend at work. He wants to use it to run SQL Server but also to connect to his LCD TV.
I think you'd be very pleased with anything from rockdirect.com

I heard great things but couldn't stretch my budget quite that far, though they have a range that perfectly fit your friends budget
Thanks I'll pass the URL on.
He got one from rockdirect. They were local which was a bonus

Thanks again.
you know you could connect to an LCD TV with VGA output?
