I am in the market for a notebook/laptop. Not looking to spend more then say 1200 bucks. Ive been looking at alot of ACERs due to a ton of friends that love theirs. My question deals with the mobile graphics cards. I dont know crap about them. 2 laptops I am looking at have these 2 chipsets ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 Link ATI Mobility Radeon X700 link ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP link None of these apear to use shared video memory(like i said i dont know shit about laptops when it comes to graphics), I am not worrying about straight battery life bc it will mostly stay at home. I just want something that has half decient graphics to lug around on trips. Would I be safe to assume these are good enough to run say half life 2 cleanly? My only problem is I am not sure of any ACER dealers in my area(going to look that up on the site), but buying from most retailers ends up being a fucking hassle with retard sales people. I am moving in with the female and she is taking my desktop and I want a laptop for work/couch usage due to not enough space for more desks. I can get a decient deal on the lower end one from a friend thats a ASP for Acer. I want to stray away from macs right now... I have reasons, but I wont post thing, has nothing to do with being any sort of M$ fan boy either.
