I am very interested in the 9860, im actually thinking about buying it tomorrow and then picking it up at Sagers HQ the next day.
Just have a couple questions for you guys out there
1) 80 gig Sata 5400 or 60 gig ultra 7200 "not to sure what to do on this one"
2) im goin after the 3.6, 2 gigs of ram, xp pro yada yada, is there anything else do you guys recommend for high end gaming or VPNing
3) Will this be a gaming laptop that will last me quite some time, and will it be easy for me to upgrade?
any other info would be great
Have a great night!
Welcome to the boards. Im going with the 80gig 5400rpm..one because I want the extra storage. Two, because when I buy a second drive later I want to use Raid 0 then they'll be faster then a 7200 rpm drive.
Your second question, you seem to have it all covered.. 2 gigs im finding (though can't afford yet) is going to be very helpful in high intensive games.
Over time they will release new graphics cards.. rumour of a 16 pipeline card in the future.. I should last you for some time to come.. Read Adam's review if you haven't yet.. http://notebookforums.com/showthread.php?t=49132
