|We found 1280x768 with 2XAA and 8XAF to be the highest playable settings on this notebook with the Mobility Radeon X700. This setting gave us very good image quality in the game and playable performance throughout Half Life 2. In Half Life 2 it is beneficial to the image quality if you can enable Anti-Aliasing, especially at lower resolutions. Widescreen gaming in Half Life 2 is quite fun and engaging, there is more horizontal world space visible compared to non-widescreen.
At 1280x768 with 2XAA and 8XAF the game looks absolutely beautiful on the Mobility Radeon X700. Anti-Aliasing really clears up the jaggies in this game, and the Anti-Aliasing quality of the Mobility Radeon X700 at 2XAA is un-matched.
I got this off of that Acer review linked up above by Muhaha. Sounds really promising. I am so anxious to play this game, when the hell are the Z70V's coming!!!! I'm gonna order it from newegg, its only like $32.50 there plus like $2.99 for shipping. Looks like it also comes with CS:S .. very cool, I've never played, excited to try it out.
So I read somewhere or other that the Z70V refresh's will ship into the country on the 27th of July and then there will be a delay for them to go through customs and be distributed to the resellers and then customized, so we're probably looking at like the first or second week in August for Z70V refresh ships?
