AMD E-450 a bit of info :http://laptoping.com...benchmarks.html (the laptop reviewed here isn't the one i'm after, they have slight differences which i am thinking which i would maybe buy) this'll basically be just a normal day-to-day laptop for college. gaming not in mind, not that much interested anymore, tried but meh.i'm just not sure with the cpu... "dual CPU cores at 1.65GHz, with 512KB of L2 cache per core"? other specs: Processor AMD E-450 1.65GHz, 1MB Cache Operating System Ubuntu Linux (windows can be pirated) Memory 2GB DDR3 (is this enough or should i upgrade it to 4gb?) Screen Property 14" LED Display (1366x768) Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6320 Graphics Hard Drive 500GB Optical Media Drive DVDRW SuperMulti Connectivity LAN: 10/100 Mbps/ WLAN: 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth 3.0 Power 6-cell Li-ion battery/up to 4 hours charge-in-use it's around USD375.93 basically, the reason i need to buy a laptop, is because my brother is also taking computer science and one laptop is clearly not enough, plus my external hdd is nearly full. i am thinking of another laptop, more than double the price(USD 845.87) of this one, but is an Intel Core i7-2670QM 2.20GHz, 6MB Cache, NVIDIA GT 540M 2GB VRAM, 8GB DDR3 and 750GB HDD. but i feel it's a bit too much? or should i settle with intel HD Graphics 3000? with an Intel Core i3? prices would be higher than $500 though.
