Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

Yes, it will. Just make sure that the battery life is what you're looking for.

 

I personally wouldn't buy it because of the warranty, but I guess it's only $300.

Wow thanks for telling me about the battery. I just looked it up and it said a maximum of 2.7 hours...

The warranty also is a little annoying so I'll have to reconsider this thing.

You might have to really push the Intel integrated chip to play Runescape HD with full settings. I know it will play RSHD, but perhaps without all of those effects. The processor is better, which is really the only step up.

it is but AMD makes it kind of slow, i would reccomend Intel though

Intel produce slow cpu's aswell... =)

 

*taliban*

J'adore aussi le sexe et les snuff movies

Je trouve que ce sont des purs moments de vie

Je ne me reconnais plus dans les gens

Je suis juste un cas désespérant

Et comme personne ne viendra me réclamer

Je terminerai comme un objet retrouvé

...and I just realised I worded my post terribly up there, making me look stupid. What I meant to say was "for the average end-user, there is no reason to specifically go for Intel over AMD."

 

My Athlon X2 7750 is a pretty nice CPU and it has served me well for over a year now, gaming and all.

I have the same processor, and I agree. AMD processors are perfectly good for whatever money you pay for one.
