  User-1229855 19:04 13 Jan 2008

The following Mesh laptop looks good value against the Rock laptop:

Mesh GX 700 - £1,299

Intel Core2 Duo T7500 Dual Core 64Bit Processor(2 X 2.2GHz,4MB L2 cache)
17.1"WUXGA with AVC Glass, resolution 1920X1200
512MB dedicated DDRIII MXM Nvidia Geforce 8600M GT VRAM, Support DirectX10
4GB DDR2 677MHZ Memory
250GB SATA Hard Drive

Rock - X770-T8300 - £1,399

Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 2.4GHz,3MB Cache,800MHz
NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT 512MB (DX10)
WSXGA+ X-Glass rock logo Orange
2GB DDR2 667MHz
100GB 7200rpm SATA HDD

Is there any reason why Rock would be better ?

if it's for gaming 8700m is better + it has the new penryn mobile cpu that is better and more power efficient.

It will be for gaming, now seen this Toshiba which has the 8700m and is £1,299:

2GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor
2GB DDR2 RAM 800MHz, 4 MB cache
320GB hard disk space
17in widescreen TruBrite SXGA
nVidia GeForce 8700M GT

Is Rock still the best ?

what kinda games do u mostly play?

Want to play games like COD4 but also strategy games like Company of Heroes and Sudden Strike 3.

well for the likes of cod4 u mostly want graphics power but i see u want to play strategy so u will need processing power too but with the specs there i would probally go for the rock or toshiba

i dont know what laptops are like never really liked them, but i doubt the 400mhz would that much difference in ur gaming needs.

also the toshiba got faster ram at 800mhz so might be the better buy there and with the £100 u save could buy a headset and a laser mouse :)

if it was a gaming rig u wanted though i would always sugest a tower though but the my opinion

hope this helps :)
