Opinion on these laptops

  matt_crosspatch 10:17 27 May 2007

I am thinking of buying a new laptop and have narrowed my choise to 2 machines:

Asus F3JP click here

Novatech Alpha N T7200
click here

I have read any reviews I can find and would like opinions from anyone who has bought one of these.

Many thanks!

for me it would have to be the Novatech. Mainly for the fact that the Asus uses a "hypermemory" graphics card, which will only have 128Mb of dedicated memory, and will take the rest from the systems memory.

The Novatech has 256 Mb dedicated memory with it's graphic card, and has double the system memory of the Asus to boot.

I have had Asus laptops for a long time now. They are very well built and look gorgeous (they tend to have lovely screens). The Asus has the more powerful graphics card, which does have 256mb of dedicated memory. It also comes with bluetooth, and inbuilt webcam and mic. It also has Vista Ultimate and a 2yr warranty over the standard novatech one year. However it only has 1gb of ram over 2gb which is a downfall, but I am sure can be upgraded.

Basically it depends on what you want, more ram, or less ram with a load of other features.

Thanks folks

I have looked under 'bundles' on laptops direct and can get the same laptop with 2gb for about the same price as buying vista for the novatech (bearing in mind the novatech does not include an OS)
