Today I got a Compaq PIV 2.5G, 512, HD 40G 4.200 rpm, ATI 345 with 64M shared memory.
IÂ´m choosing this Dell because itÂ´s the one that best suits my needs. ItÂ´s a PIV 3G, 512RAM, and has this 2 options of video card: ATI9700 and 9800. Many laptops more expensive donÂ´t have these cards.
My actual compaq canÂ´t handle 3 layers in resolume without getting slower playback.
ThatÂ´s why IÂ´m trying to choose the best config. I need to know what would give me the best performance: a better video card or a HD with a higher speed. For me this config is very good and I wonÂ´t need to extend it (donÂ´t even know what I could extend).
About the options of Dell, for me they are fine, since it has everything I need. What could be better?
