Well, i bought an acer aspire 7520 half a year ago for 600€. I really have a crappy video card: GeForce 7000m. My friend bought an acer too, a laptop (don't know the model) for 590€. In this laptop there is an 9*** GTm or something like that in it. Is that fair? I is a huge difference, and don't tell me that 'prices of technology drops if it get's older'. Because the Acers with the same card costed like 620€ back then.
Is it just me, or did they really screw me with this laptop?:mad:
Where exactly did you purchase the laptop? And where did your friend buy his?
Laptopshop.be - Alle laptops en alle laptop-accessoires. it's belgian :) But overall they sell for for fairly good prices. I was looking for a way to upgrade my card, and after i while i saw something about Turbocache. On the sticker on my laptop it says: up to 1407mb NVIDIA GeForce 7000m Turbocache. How do i use this/ I googled it, but nothing usefull showed up. Help!! :( EDIT: my friend bought his in a local shop, named Vandeborre, they have a website too: TV, video, hifi, elektro, multimedia, telefonie? U vindt het bij Vanden Borre - TV, vidéo, hifi, électro, multimédia, téléphonie? A découvrir chez Vanden Borre
Laptops with bad graphics cards? WHAT
wraithcat;4768557I think turbochace refers to the ability of the card to use both it's memory as well as RAM memory of the laptop. But yeah, it does seem odd that you paid so much, such a short time ago for a 7xxx
Yeah, but 'up to1407mb turbocache' is not what i'm having now. I'm having 256mb shared, and it's fucking slow. There is no tool to chance it, and it's not in BIOS of my pc when i boot up.:uhm:
EDIT: JJz, what do you mean? :)
If you pay really big [and stupid] money you can get awesome laptop for gaming but Dell and Compaq don't make decent gaming laptops.
Anything with Integrated or xxxx-m [aka mobile] graphics is sure to suck.
It's a laptop... of course its graphics card is going to be a piece of shit!
You're upset that you've got an inferior graphics card because you didn't bother to research and see what else you could use? Boo hoo. And besides, chances are you have a better specification elsewhere on the system. If you wanted to you could spend 2-3x that amount on a laptop and still have crap graphics; at the end of the day it depends on what it's used for and companies have to cater for everyone.
And if you bought the product that isn't "for you" then...well...tough. Deal with it, learn the lesson, and next time use your brain before buying.
