    Default Computer Specifications - New Laptop Computer

    When looking for a laptop more RAM and bigger hard drives are good things, but what about the Central Processing Unit?
    I know to look at clock speeds etc. but it's been a while since I've been checking specifications, more cores or higher clock speed?
    So for example; a Quad Core 1.5GHz or a Dual Core 2GHz.

    Quad core 1.5ghz would be better, i assume.

    But depends, because not all programs utilize four cores. Would be better for multitasking. i.e. every program could utilize it's own core.

    My school computers have Pentium 4's, running at 3ghz, and my 2.7 core two duo completely outperforms them.

    Make sure to look at the ddr, ram, ghz, how many cores it has, who makes it, the graphics card.

    I was looking for a laptop but I don't seem to be able to find anything that has a decent graphics card.

    I currently have a Toshiba L300:
    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5800 2.00GHz
    Intel Integrated Graphics Card
    3GB RAM

    One of the laptops I've been looking at is the HP Pavilion g6-1232sa:
    AMD Dual-Core E2-3000M processor (1.8 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache)
    AMD Radeon HD 6380G Dual GPU 1 GB DDR3 dedicated, up to 1.98 GB total)
    4GB RAM

    The graphics card is better but the processor isn't , is it?

    If I recall correctly the T5800 was released somewhere between 2008-2009. To be quite honest, Intel graphic cards are utter shit.

    Anyways; I don't know how much you paid for your first laptop, if I were to guess I'd say around $500? Never the less none of those laptops are meant for gaming. The processors are pretty even though, I'd say the E2-3000m is a bit better.

    I don't know what your price range is; however to get a decent gaming laptop I'd say you'd have to pay around $900-$1200. If you want to go above and beyond get alienware.

    These are two laptops, 492 each, that I've been looking at:

    Lenovo Ideapad Z570:
    Intel Core i3-2330 (2.2GHz 3MB Cache)
    NVIDIA GeForce GT520M 1GB
    8 GB DDR3

    HP Pavilion dv6-6b50sa:
    AMD Dual-Core A4-3310MX (2.1GHz, 2.5GHz Turbo Frequency, 2x1MB Cache)
    AMD Radeon HD 6515G2 Dual GPU
    6 GB DDR3

    The Lenovo has more RAM but the graphics card in the HP is better .

    Not always, Striker. Upgrading RAM is cheaper than upgrading Graphics Card. You'll be fine with 6GB, anyways.

    I prefer AMD cards over NVidia, as well.
