Hey there, I'm planning to purchase a laptop from Futureshop here in Vancouver,BC. Canada. It's a Toshiba (Intel Centrino Duo Processor Tech. with Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5450) 2GB Memory (type unkown) 250GB HD Space GFX:ATI Radeon HD 256MB Dedicated Wireless: 802.11a/g + Pre-N WiFi +BlueTooth TruBrite Screen, Webcam and Mic, 5-1 Media Adapter Price: $1599.99 CDA $70.83/Month for 24Months I kind of hate how Futureshop give such vague specs on the products they sell. :T I kind of don't want to buy it from here, but the laptop looks pretty good in terms of specs and Futureshop has financing available. I'm just wondering if this will be a good buy..I'll be mainly using the computer for school, a little bit of gaming (WC3, CNC, ..etc, mainly RTS Games) I'm fairly new to laptops.. basically want a decent one with a dedicated gfx card for my rts games and one with a fair bit of hd space. any tips, suggestions, or comments please share them with me I keep second guessing on laptops I want to purchase. I do want to get the most out of what I pay. Thanks in advance!
