I'm looking to buy a new Studio 15 laptop from Dell. I am looking for something that I can use for Microsoft Word, recording/editing/listening to music and videos, Photoshop, PC games (Sims3, Diablo, etc), Firefox, and just for daily use.
-Genuine Windows Vista® Ultimate Edition, 64-bit SP1
-Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T6400 (2.0GHz/800Mhz FSB/2MB cache)
-4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800MHz
-320GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM)
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
8X Slot Load Super Multi (DL DVD+/-R Drive + RAM support)
Intel® WiFi Link 5100 802.11agn Half Mini-Card
I talked to a Dell rep, and she suggested I upgrade to an Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.4GHz/1066Mhz FSB/3MB cache) processor, and to upgrade the memory (I'm not so sure I'll need to have 6-8 GB of RAM). I just wanted another opinion before I shuck out 200 extra bucks on a computer.
