If its that big, you might as well get a desktop with the same specs for cheaper.

For gaming; not at all.
You'd hardly be able to play CS:Source with intergrated graphics.
Maximum like 15 fps, if you only run the game and clock the cpu
Which isn't enough if you want to lan.

I want to use it for gaming on LAN parties (CS:S, HL2, ... like games). Recording something and for some homework. The 18,4" vscreen is perfect for my eyesight.
It sounds just about good to me, for the things you want to do on it.

For the games, HL2 and CS require more than 1GB of space on the drive, so that's ok I guess. (EDIT: ^ Ok, he said otherwise. )
For homework, OpenOffice is a great free alternative to MS Office once the trial runs out.

I'd avoid Fujitsu Siemens for laptops. The battery life tends to be poor. Mine lasts about 2 hours, and I've yet to find a single person with FS laptop that has a battery life much longer.

Gaming, get a desk top. The specs are decent but there are some out there exactly the same with 4gb ram's.

Nope not good at all for gaming...u need at least a better graphics card for starters..

Thats not going to cut it for anything other than basic office apps and net browsing.

The CPU is rather dated and the Screen res and the Intergrated GFX contoller sounds like a recipe for slow choppy performance. I doubt it would even play a DVD fullscreen without being choppy let alone HD media.

Intergrated graphics is going to give you a serious problem along with the processor speed. 2.16 ghz is far too weak to get to playing what you seem to be talking about, especially over the internet. On top of playing games, this computer would blow at recording. There simply is not enough power to do anything serious.

For that price you can get an epic Desktop PC. My Desktop was £600 and I can run most games on Full settings (Crysis runs on the second highest setting with a great FPS)

i got a dell laptop last year with the same specs for 700 so i really think you can get a better deal, and if ur gaming DONT get integrated graphics, you use your ram for video processing which is very limited and lowers your available memory

Any similiarly priced recommendation (+-100 on that shop.).

in norway this pc costs 6700kr (1192 dollars). Norway is ****ing expensive, but i get 5900 from the state (i have low vision and need it for school and such).

here's an norwegiaan shop, but i think you can understand it by looking at the numbers. 6700,- = 700€-ish prices on that other shop. http://www.komplett.no/k/kc.aspx?bn=10011

INTEGRATED GRAPHICS?!
Save your money get a halfway decent video card if you want to game, nothing sucks more than integrated graphics especially for games
SlappyMcGee don't you fail.

I don't know shit about computers, but iirc here's some advice that was given to me when I bought my laptop in august (HP Pavilion dv7-2185eb, in case you wanted to know): For processor, you want at least 2,6 Ghz processor speed, and if you're getting an intel core duo processor, it's best to get one with the four digit number bigger than ~7000. (Correct me if this information is wrong)

Also, here's a great website for comparing graphics cards:

its a good laptop

but usually with fj the battery probly wont be good

i had an amilo once. i like the laptop. just the harddrive was crap. after 3 months it got sent back and had to have the harddrive replaced cos it just completely failed on me one day
and then about a a month and a half ago it completely died. so i got a new one, my step dad sorted my old one out (used the recovery disk from my latest laptop which is an acer, to reload vista cos the original recovery disk for mine had been lost) and gave it to my sis.

I you want to game, learn how to build a pc, and buy parts from newegg. You could build a kickass pc for like 600$

What you need to start gamming is very simple. Oh and building a pc is like Legos for older people. You will Need:

A Case
Motherboard
Power Supply
A Processor(AMD or Intel)
Ram(Dont get anything less than 4 gigs)
Hard Disk Drive
CD Rom Drive

And the most important for gamming is a GRAPHICS CARD. Dont skimp out on this. The card is very important. (Nvidia or ATI)

Then simple things like a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers.

Most laptops are not meant for gamming( i had to learn that the hard way ), so get a desktop. Or If your afraid to build your own pc, you can buy a dell or hp or w/e u want and throw a Graphics card in there.

It's really hard to find laptops with 2,6ghz+


If you wanna game (recent games anyway), that's the norm
#21
That laptop is pretty crappy. That T3400 will do a few task, but wouldn't be able to run some complicated stuff. And the GMA 4500M won't be playing any games.

In the end, this laptop is not worth the money.

So...recommend me a computer similarily priced (+/-150)

This laptop, in my opinion, is already way better than the one you posted. While it's still not the best laptop for gaming, it's a very good option in your price range. The graphics card - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4560 should run nearly all games, and most in high settings (see the link I gave you before). I'm not sure about the processor, since, like I said, I only know what's been told to me about computers. I do remember though that (for example) a Intel T8600 at 2,10 GHz is better than an Intel T3600 at 2,20 GHz (again, correct me if I'm wrong, anyone).

It's a decent card, can play most games on medium-high. Do you plan on keeping that thing on your desk?


Yeah, but maybe if my 3-year old desctop at home fail on something, i can take it home (i live somewhere else sun-eve - fri-aft.noon, due to school).

Lan partys where i have to walk to get there. Vocations when i want to bring my PC.

Will it work for VALVe's source-ish games (CS:S, TF2, ...) my desctop at 2,3ghz 2gb ram does play smoothly on both games, but slow loadings and that shit.

Is this PC a good choise for it's price and will it play smoothly?

It will play those games smoothly, the only thing im worrying about is that it's 17.3inch. That thing is annoying to move around, unless you get a bag/case.

Googled up the processor, i think it was 2,53Ghz. is NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M decent?

Does it support any kind of <something> -> firewire. (PCI or Expresscard)?


In the link I gave you, it says that the graphics card can play HL2 at 126 fps and CS:S at 205 fps, both at high settings.
#33
Will that Acer Aspire run good with CSS,HL2?

Remember that the human-eye only has around 60fps. So if it runs HL2 on a decent speed over 60, it's good.

EDIT
About the gfx card
GT 230M because of the lower clock rate. Demanding DirectX 10 games like Crysis should run fluently in medium details. Older or less demanding games should run in high detail settings and high resolutions.


Me convinced

^Read the last posts please?.




An ATI Radeon HD card would be good, 2GB of ram, and a 2.20GHz duel core processor will get you playing nearly all games pretty much. I've got a friend who has the HD 2400 and that can cope pretty well except with the really high end games like need for speed shift.

^Ok, 2,53GHz is decent then. Remember, as i were told (too many times) in this thread, it's the GFX card that limits most computers.

Anyone? i am convinced of buying that Acer Aspire, but i have one last question. Does it have Expresscard or PCI that i can convert to firewire=
