I am looking to purchase my first gaming laptop and I am one of those annoying people who takes forever to buy something and does tons of research.
The G73JW - A1 was just recently added to Xotipc.com's preorder list. I was excited about the computer because of the ram and i7 720 to 740 upgrades. I didn't know much about the video card and so looked into it at notebookcheck.net . The Nvidia GTX 460M seems like a downgrade from the ATI Radeon 5870. (It did perform better on the Unigine Heaven Engine) The ATI Radeon 5870 just seems like a better card, in terms of FPS and Benchmarks. (Click the FPS or Benchmarks to see a chart for comparison. This may be a bad indicator of how a video card is rated, correct me if I'm wrong please)
I know people were having problems with the ATI card, and maybe that is why they changed it for the new model, but it seems to be fixed now. I just was wondering if I am right in thinking that the Nvidia GTX 460 is a downgrade of sorts. I am no computer expert by any means, so please guys correct me if I am wrong. Just curious to hear other people's opinions on the subject.
