Q&A: Help me with finding a laptop?
Question by : Help me with finding a laptop?
I want to buy a laptop. I typically plan on using it for mostly recreational purposes. facebook, youtube, forums, etc. I don’t plan on using it for any hardcore gaming (nothing like WOW or anything like that) but I do want to play Dawn of War 2. I really don’t care if the graphics are fantastic or not, as long as the game can run smoothly I will be happy. The only other uses I would use it for would be typing and maybe saving music.
Money is tight and I want to spend as little money as possible but at the same time I don’t want to buy crap. I need the laptop to run smooth and decent; doesn’t have to be lightning fast but it cant be slow. I was looking on Walmart and saw this
Do you think this would be a good laptop? If you have had this laptop or currently use it, please give me feedback! I am not going to spend $ 400 for a laptop, this one had a good price of $ 348
Thanks for any help you can give me, and yes I DO need a laptop, not a desktop.
Answer by Sahhid
This laptop’s CPU is too weak to run dawn of war effectively.
Increase your budget by 30 more dollars for a dual core CPU. AIM for dual core CPU minimum… and make sure the on board graphics card has 3.0 or higher pixel shader models.
