Thread: confused about buying... :|

    Default confused about buying... :|

    So after deciding that i am going to buy a laptop for my CSE classes i am confused what should i do.My budget is 50kish.I currently have a pretty outdated desktop.I can either buy a laptop with the whole amount.Or I can buy a cheaper(~35k) laptop and upgrade my GPU,RAM.Check my gadget and let me know your suggestion.---------- Post added at 16:23 ---------- Previous post was at 16:19 ----------My main concern is gaming with the laptop.My pc is already too old to do that without an upgrade.And i dont see much option within my budget with a good enough GPU.I will be very much happy to run latest games at mid settings.

    Forget about gaming on your laptop, rather save the money and buy a laptop that is capable of doing your CSE projects and spend the money on your Desktop.

    If you want to upgrade PC and buy laptop both then you have to leave gaming coz on a 35K laptop I don't think gaming experience will be near good. Not even with a 50K laptop. And also gaming with laptop is never a good idea. I suggest better use whole 50K to upgrade your PC, which will provide assistance with your study as well as gaming. Obviously you can get better technologies if you upgrade PC with that money instead of buying a laptop, only flaw here is that you are not getting backup as a laptop is able to do which is / should be the main reason for some1 to buy laptop.

    Well it depends.You might face some circumstances where u will feel the necessity of a laptop in ur study life,Like last time editing of a particular project,graph drawing in prctical classes,showing ur projects to the teachers etc etc...
    But i will suggest u to upgrade ur dextop and ya it is from a gamers point of view.U can do all ur stuay rleted work with that as well as u can play the latest games too.

    You forgot our power conditions @Sunshine , no gaming is possible with power going bye bye every hour.

    You end up being more frustrated than having 'fun'.

    what my advice to you is
    a,buy acer aspire one 25k notebook.

    b,spend 30 ish desktop now,with intent to upgrade in 1 yr.
    cpu-13 10k
    mobo-6k
    ram 4gb 2k
    gpu ati 6670 1 gb ddr5 7k
    casing and psu-3k
    total 28k

    so 53k will give you both a relatively good notebook for study and a good desktop which u can really game.

    May I suggest one thing? Wait for the upcoming Trinity APUs. The laptops which will host these chips are just shy of release, and these are just as fast as a 2nd gen i3(gaming), with enough horsepower to play the games at medium settings(even high) in some cases. You'll get a powerful laptop, and a means for playing games easily.

    That sounds very good.But how much will they cost?And when would they get released anyway?My classes are due to start after 2 months,and I can wait for some more time after that.But there is no point in waiting if they are priced at 60k+

    even 50k laptops arent good for gaming.

    so i suggest to buy laptop at 25k

    and then buy a c2q processor and 6670. you already got the g31,it will be very good for low resolution gaming

    Don't know about the price, but they should be launched officially in June. Though AMD APU laptops in BD(good ones) are a rare scene, though the 1st thing that comes to mind when these two words are used laptop+gaming = APU, hands down!

    This appears to come with:
    • 4 2.3Ghz Piledriver cores with 3.2Ghz turbo core on 2 cores
    • Radeon HD 7660G DUAL GRAPHICS with HD 7670M (better than desktop GTS 450 performance!)
    • DDR3-1600 (good, I consider this a must with all A6+ Trinity laptops or desktops - the A10 should've probably come with an 1866 kit), 8GB of it
    • 1TB HDD (nice for a laptop!)
    • 64-bit Windows 7
    • 6-cell battery (all-day battery life ftw)
    These are the leaked specs of an APU(Trinity, not Llano) which is already available in Korea, though the price is steep at $800(the price was raised!). I'm sure you'll see better prices after sometimes, around ~$650 with 500Gb/4GB/No windows.

    Just imagine... a notebook with netbook-class 10hr battery life (running netbook basic tasks... but you can still game and edit video like a boss!), comfortable 15.6" form factor, with the graphics horsepower of a desktop GTS 450 and four CPU cores, 8GB RAM, and a spacious 1TB HDD for under $800 buckaroonies. This kind of laptop at this price wasn't possible to get--I think---ever before!
    Scrumptious ain't it?

    look man.trinity is good but,with a i3 and dedicated graphics like 6670 you'll gain much in the overall factor,
    apu will be good at certain extend but not good in the long run.
    i had a apu 3670k which was good but not as gaming friendly amd wants you to believe.

    Everything depends on how much horse power you need. If a 30~35k laptop is capable of handling your projects then buy a laptop and do a pc upgrade. On the other hand if these cheap laptops aren't good enough then buy a 50k laptop or wait for trinity apus.
