Great thread, hopefully great Laptop ...
New to this Forum. Happened to see (and try out!) an M3438G at a local retail store Saturday. Rare to find a decent machine like this in South Africa.
It's taken me the best part of this afternoon to read this thread & others regarding this lappy. I HAVE to replace my four year old Dell Latitude C800, was about to commit to a FS M1425 and then I saw this
Needless to say I am impressed. Installed the BF2 Demo in store (took all of a couple minutes to install, takes waaay longer to install on my Desktop 1Gig RAM FX5900 2.6Ghz P4HT) then maxed just about every setting and the results were unbelievable. Apart from the temperature issues (we have such a hot climate here that the norm for our GPU's is 85 Degrees C, the Dell's HDD was running at 53-4 Degrees this afternoon according to DTemp) so I don't think I should be too worried. Dead Pixels on the display IS a cause for concern as well, we do have good FS support here but I am not so sure that they will carry those kind of spares in quantity.
Now to talk to the bank tomorrow to arrange finance
Thanks for all the information (and Pix) that helped to make the decision!
