  1. Ok so I graduate High School in 5 days and my parents come to me and say, for college, we want to get you a laptop.

    My parents are very this was a total shocker.

    My Budget...$2000. Less is better.

    My Goals.

    Fairly Portable (doesnt have to be extremely thin)
    Quality (This should last me 4 years)
    Decent Performance (Moderate Gaming: bf2 on low)
    And im also thinking about a macbook..

    I have found this here

    But I am unsure how the x1400 performs. I mean i dont need killer graphics by any means, but i think a x1600 might be a better choice.

    Help me techspot!

    And i know..why in here? Well this fits in Video, Other Hardware, Sorta in i just put in here!

    i'd go with a macbook, and then run bootcamp or parallels incase you need to be able to access any windows apps for classes, etc. can't go wrong w/ a mac.

    After Recalculating my budget, Im not going to be able to afford $2000.00

    So a decent mac is out of the question.

    That said does anyone have Benchmarks on Mobile GPUs?

    I have been looking at
    Go 6600

    But I cant find a solid benchmark anywhere!

    But I need the ability to do some gaming. And none of those low end macbooks have a dedicated graphics card.

    hmm, that puts you in a tough spot. how much would it cost you to put in a decent graphics card? because a macbook would be sweet in all other respects.
