Hey guy's, first post so be nice lol.
I am looking to get a thin laptop around 25mm thin that is similar to the Macbook Air and these new Ultrabooks. My budget is £300, i know i am not going to get anywhere near the spec of an ultrabook/macbook air for that, but i am not looking to, bear with me. I wont be doing allot of resource intensive stuff on it, its for taking to uni for taking notes and some programming and web development etc, something my u100 netbook can already do no problem with win7, i just really want a bigger screen 10" is a tad to small, 13" or 14" would be just nice.
But, (there is always a but) i was hoping i could get something powerfull enought to play BF2 and BF2142 (not at high settings ovc but say medium low) I have been doing allot of research as i know allot of the integrated graphics can't play bf2 and 2142 due to the lack of shaders or something, but then i found out about this program, Swiftshader which eliminates that problem (to an extent anyway), check it out on youtube pretty neat if you have a powerfull enough cpu and crap onboard graphics.
So here is what i found so far on the web.
Meenee 13.2" Notebook
This one is nice and thin and is what really got me looking into these thin notebook's, problem is it only has a Atom d425 @ 1.8ghz which is pleanty for doing what i want bar playing bf2 and 2142, also found out it has a intel GMA x3150 which i think is ok and might get away with play the 2 games but i duno about the cpu... Here's a couple of video's
Video 1 Video 2
NoteBook 13.3" (EVOsys & Generic)
Here is a bit of a funny one, i first came across this laptop on ebay under the name of EVOsys. here is a link the good thing about this one is it has a Atom D525 (real dual core with 4 threads) running at 1.8ghz though i don't know what the onboard graphics is. I done some more seaching on ebay and found this link which look the exact same as the EVOsys and has the exact same spec, good thing about this one is that it tells you what onboard graphics is has GMA 965, which i don't know allot about but do you think this might be able to play bf2 and 2142 witht he help from the real dual core atom and that Swiftshader programing i was walking about earlery?
Let me know what you guy's think as i have been out of the whole computing loop since i started uni.
Best Regards, Anton2k.
