    I'm shopping for a laptop for under 1,500 and so far I've found two of them that are pretty nice. They both have AMD 64 3200s, are equially well equiped with DVD burners and the like. The main difference is that the eMachine has the ATI Mobility RADEON 9600 with 64MB of dedicated DDR and the Compaq Presario has a NVIDIA GeForce4 440 GoVideo Memory 64MB DDR. I know that they neither of them will play Doom 3 at the highest setting, but which one is do you all think is better? And how do you think that they will handle a game such as Morrowind or the cell shaded game, 13?

    Go for the Radeon 9600. It is a newer tech than the GF4, it will also perform much better in games. It should run Morrowind excellently, 13 should run very well also...For Doom 3, expect to play at low or mid settings with a resolution of about 800x600.

    a 9600pro is much better than a GF4 MX440. The 96pro has 4 pipes and 128bits mem interface(not too sure about the ones in laptops though) while the MX440 has 2 pipes and 64bits.
