Found what looks like a really good gaming/desktop replacement laptop on newegg. The only thing I don't like about it is the blu-ray drive, I don't need one of those just yet, it would probably be $400 less without it, and I would rather save than have a blu-ray. Also I'm not sure I need the TV Tuner card, but that's ok....

Anyway, my question is about the P7350....how does it relate to Intel's other laptop processors, like the T5750, T8100, T8300 etc series?

Is it a faster processor or slower?

From some research, it looks like its (the P7350) is a next-gen Penryn 45nm. I found its better for battery life, but I haven't found anything (so far) on graphics performance.

But this laptop has a great card and good ram, so should it be a problem?

It seems to be a good buy to me. ( WAY out of my price range though )

From what I saw, it also has a larger FSB ( i think ) than some of the older processors.

As for the GeForce 9600M GT, It's pretty reasonable. Next Generation Performance Notebook PC - NVIDIA

Not the most powerful thing out there, but good

Cool.

Also, if the OS is 64 bits, will I be able to play older games written for a 32 bit OS? Will it be backwards compatible?

That's not what I'm after though. ;)

Awesome.

If you don't mind my asking, what exactly did you upgrade?

Can the Blu-Ray drive write DVDs?

Thanks
