  1. Hi!

    I'm planning to buy a notebook in the near future and my question would be: which graphics card should I prefer amongst these three:

    ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
    Intel GMA X3100
    Geforce Go 6150

    Mainly i'm planning to use this notebook for for "non-graphics stressing" applications but if I want to do some minor gaming (like some RTS games) what would you suggest?

    Thanks for any suggestions :wave:

    there's no need to compare. the 6150go laptops are quite hot and thus unstable. the x1400 stands between powerful and weak videocards, so you will just pay 100-300$ to have it in your laptop. i think it's useless,'cos if you wanna play you should check some more powerful videochips(ATI x1600 is miminal i think, geforce go7600 would prefer). the intel video stands practically in one-level performance with ATI x1400 video. however, laptop will run more time on batteries with integrated videochip.
