Processor and graphics cards
by SINBAD - 4/4/09 2:03 PM
I have weeded down my choices for a new laptop but there are a few things I need to get more info on before I make this decision.
I have 2 models of Lenovo in mind.
#1 says Intel core 2 duo processor t6400 (2Ghz 800 Mhz 2MB, NVIDIA Geforce 9300M 256 MB
#2 = Intel Core 2 duo processor p8400 (2.26 Ghz 1Ghz 3MB, ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 512 MB
#1 is about $350 cheaper than #2. I just do not know what these numbers for processor and graphic cards mean.
I will be using this computer for photography work.
I tried calling Lenovo to ask them but they are closed today and I would like to get my order in online ASAP.
I usually run with many windows open at one time doing research on web sites, several other applications and notice that I have problems with this with my desktop and need to reboot quite often.
Both of these that I am considering have 4GB and 320GB HD. This is about the most I can find and am even considering having Lenovo change this to a 500GB if possible. I want something that will last me about 5 years without having to update. Of course I am sure the 4gb will have to be updated in a few years.
