zipper Posted December 6, 2007 Report Share Posted December 6, 2007 I desperately need a new lappie which is capable to some gaming but not the ultimate one. The alternatives here are quite restrcted, either go8700 or Quadro 1600M equipped; perhaps go8600 SLI also. But what about those SLI ones - meaning Toshiba Satellite X200. The 8700 version seems not to be available, having probably been replaced with Go8600 SLI. Does the SLI version have problems with drivers/driver updates and is it always faster than single 8700? The other alternative is HP 8710w with quadro 1600M. But it offers just one HD vs. Toshiba with dual HDs and costs probably 300? more. I suspect the Toshiba to have more restricted operation time w. battery with SLI using more power. I can't wait go8800 versions to come and they probably are over what I'll spend to this hobby at least so far; perhaps next time. ATI seems to be out of question, offering Mobile 2700 at best, which rivals go8700 probably, but only in Amilo which I won't buy because of not so favourable experiences. Do you have experiences of these lappie models? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
