    Dont really need help but might as well ask this -

    Which would you advise out of these 2 laptop -

    http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/toshib...20735-pdt.html

    or

    http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/hp-pav...03709-pdt.html

    I'm pretty clueless when it comes to the insides of a computer lol. I know the basics but would like to know which you would choose and why?

    - a side note, this is the laptop im using now - http://shopping.reevoo.com/p/packard...te-tj74-rb-050 So either of those I lsited will at least be a little bit of an upgrade

      Always go Intel.

      Both Laptops are pretty bad tbh..

      You do not need 8gb of RAM in that thing :/

      This is by far a better laptop.



      Laptops arent good for gaming though... the graphics in laptops are hilariously bad unless you wanna pay near enough a grand.

        What would cause my computer to freeze for 10 seconds(especially when playing media) whenever repairing and extracting newsgroup files.Considering I have a amd phenom II 4x3.60ghz processor and 4 gb ram.

                  Ahh nice, around 500 is my budget so you got it just right Seems like a decent laptop and Samsung always seem to be solid products from what I've experienced.

                  0.2 MB web cam tho o.O Kinda sucks but not really a problem can get an external one xD

                  Cheers for the advice

                    another question sorry, but is this computer worth the price and how much fps do you think it will give me?

                      No idea what it could be without being at your pc :/ Could be a memory leak or a dodgy processor.. :/ Hard to tell what it is.

                      Worth the price? No. You could build it yourself for alot cheaper lols. But if youre not willing then thats a solid rig right there. You'd smash out 60 fps on pretty much any game you play maxxed. CF is capped at 200 so you'd get 200

                          This looks like a beast, pretty sure this will give you a good frame rate.

                              Well i have a no idea what things i need to buy to build a pc, let alone put it together, and on what graphics setting do you think i would get 60 fps on?
