I'm new to the forum and hope I'm not doing anything wrong, if so I apologize in advance. But I'm getting ready to upgrade to a new laptop.
An HP Pavilion dv6z quad edition for $785.00, I'm okay with spending the money and I plan on using it for everyday use, and heavy gaming such as gta or other games that can be modded. I would like to know if it appears to be powerful enough to handle it with little or no lag before I invest in it and I'm open to suggestions for anything even an different laptop.
Operating system Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Processor AMD Quad-Core A8-3550MX Accelerated Processor (2.7GHz/2.0GHz, 4MB L2 Cache)
Graphics card 1GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7690M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics(TM) [HDMI, VGA]
Memory 8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
Hard drive 640GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
Primary optical drive SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support.
I'm upgrading from a Compaq presario c700
Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2390 @ 1.86GHz, 1867 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 2.00 GB
Hard drive space only 135GB. I'm not sure about the graphics card but I'm sure it's poor.
I would like to know how big of an upgrade from my current laptop would it be. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
