Samsung Galaxy A8 review: Hands-on
I am soon to be a first time laptop buyer....but am totally stuck on what to get. Been searching around for about 3 weeks an all i've managed to achieve is headaches!
I am in uni and have a budget of about 1000ish pounds.
I had considered sony laptops, but their graphics cards left alot to be desired for gaming.
Currently I am looking at a Mesh laptop.
its for 1200...over my budget but im at a point were i am willing to strech that because i just want one asap and to concentrate on studying instead of searching!
The mesh one is spec'd as follows:
64MB DDR ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility Graphics
15.1" TFT SXGA+ Active Colour Screen (1400x1050)
24x CD Re-Writer & 8x DVD-ROM Drive (Combo)
Built-in 1.44MB, 3.25" Floppy Disk Drive
Built-in 3D Stereo Sound, Speakers & Microphone
Built-in Video Camera
Internet Ready 56Kbps internal Fax Modem
Network Ready Internal 10/100 Ethernet Adaptor
FREE 3 Year Return-to-Base Warranty
Weight: 3.2Kg (Base specification)
FREE Carry Case + Additional Features
Does this seem to be a good buy.
Or any recomendations on similarly priced/spec'd laptops?
bluk is not an issue, but noise is..so it has to be quite.
grpahics for games doesn't have to be the best but i want to be able to play gp4 vice city.
thanks for your help, if your still awake and reading this i really appreciate your time.
click here have a look at this slightly lower spec (great saving moneywise) laptop.
only downside i can see is the 14" screen
i know it adds to your headache but the money you would save would buy some asprins.
good luck on what you decide.
Try the Rock QuaddraXS, it is very good. I have the 2.6-30 model. It seems to play games quite well. At least I'm impressed when I play Colin Macrae 2.0. If you have any games that require DirectX higher than 8.1, you will have problems.
My Quaddra has a desktop CPU and has 5 minutes of silence, followed by 5 minutes of gentle whirling. Much quieter than my Desktop alternative.
If you have your UCAS number still, quote it to Rock and get a 2-3% discount. The discount wasn't an option, when I looked to buy online, so you may need to phone them.
