    hi, i m planing to buy a laptop and come across Mobile Intel 945 GM Express Graphic Chipset, anyone know its performance? how do it compare to low cost 6600 go, 6150, x1400, x1100 or even the old x200m or x300m etc...

    I think its similar to integrated like the 6150 and x200m, but that's just a guess, if your doing mid-end gaming, you want a semi-dedicated chip with hypermemory, like the x1400.

    If you plan on gaming I wouldn't get anything less than the x1400 (I have one in my laptop it isn't bad, can play Oblivion, but don't expect amazing performance or high detail) If you are more serious about gaming and want to play modern games on medium to high detail then you really need something along the lines of a geforce go 7600.

    Here they are in order of performance (best to worst)

    6600 go
    x1400
    x300m
    Intel 945 GM Graphic/ x200m / x1100 / 6150 (These are all much the same and crap for gaming as they are intergrated)

    HP has some good customizable ones. For a little over $1000 USD, you can get a Core Duo, 1GB of ram, a GeForce go 7600 and a 17" screen. Most other companies also offer customization on laptops.

    The price is not nearly as bad in the US(and I would assume Canada would be similar), we can find them for reasonable prices, just a bit over $1000 for a decently equipped T7200 laptop.

    Erm, he's talking $1400 Canadian dollars, not pounds... 1200 pounds is about $2200+ USD so make that Canadian and it's almost double what he wants to spend, try thinking £500 or so

    The problem is that conversion doesn't directly work between pounds and dollars because the prices of tech stuff seems to be so different in the US/Canada and the UK. Lineage: you can usually look at the notebooks manufacturer's website and they will let you customize it, try to go with at least a GeForce Go 7400 or a Radeon x1400 for graphics, 1GB of ram, and a Core2Duo CPU, that should handle all you need quite well, without breaking your budget.

    That's a nice one, but he said he wanted 15.4" or smaller screen so its more portable...so the dv6000t line of HP would be close to what he wanted, but would limit his GPU to a GeForce Go 7400. Which should handle games decently, my friend can run stuff pretty nicely on a GeForce Go 7200.

    Laptops4Me might be worth browsing, for something in your price range?

    I apologize I jumped the gun by responding in the way I saw others responding and see now in your rules you do not allow what you call "pimping" and could be deleted for that. What I posted was specifically on topic and responded to the question posed, and I am far from anonymous and as such would not be "spam". It would seem the others advertising unpaid companies should be removed under the same and other rules listed.

    To answer your question specifically without advertising anyone who is not an official advertiser, there are boards based upon an MSI system with the nVidia 7600 available through your local pc builders that are in your price range. I did see big graphic advertisements for MSI and nVidia here.

    We have been using them as one of our suppliers for several and have been very happy with their performance and "modding" capability. You can easily take a $400 desktop system and turn it into a $2,000 system over several years. You can also do a similar option with laptops.

    In general I've been modifying systems for 27 years and building complete systems for 12, so if you have a question I will try and help and will resist the urge to show you what we have for sale unless we officially advertise through this site.

    Sincerely,

    Matthew Cloud
