Cheap Laptop To Play The Odd Game ?

  Acer-1 11:45 26 Nov 2008

Want to upgrade my laptop but have a low budget i've got around £300 max to spend, am not looking to play the latest high graphics games like far cry 2 but the if i can play some of the older games like counter strike and half life 2 with good graphics and little lag then i would be happy.

So would you suggest getting a new laptop or getting one of ebay?

I have seen this PHILIPS FREEVENTS X54 on ebay heres the spec is this any good?

INTEL CORE DUO T2300E 1.66 mhz
2048 MB RAM DDR 2
256MB NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7400 Dedicated Graphics
Hard Drive Capacity: 100 Gb
DVD-ROM Speed 8 x
Screen Size/Type: 15.4" WXGA

£240 buy it now price

I'd bid the lower price & wait.
According to nvidia, the Go 7400 is on the lower end of the Series 7 Gfx cards.
The laptop has a reasonable CPU and RAM

I am sure it would run those games without any problems.

I quite like this one: click here
