    Hi, im a gamer and i am going to buy a laptop, now i really want DX10

    in the shops that are availible to me, the best one i can find is the ACER ASP 9815WKMI

    SPEC is:

    Core 2 Duo T7200 Processor 2GHz

    667MHz FSB

    4MB Cache

    2GB RAM

    240 GB Hard Drive

    DVD Super Multi Dual Layer Drive

    20.1" Crystalbrite Widescreen

    Mircosoft Windows Vista Ultimate

    256MB nVidia GeForce Go 7600 Graphics

    1 year FREE warranty


    Now thats all good especially the screen size for a laptop lol, but the graphics card is not.

    when i go to ATI website and go to notebook section there fastest one for laptops is HD2600XT and nvidia website on laptop section is still the 7 series

    so my question is do you guys know when that ATi card is commming onto laptops or the nvidia is doing dx10 for laptops

    thanks

    You could buy a Dell. They have 15.4 and 17 inch laptops with nvidia's mobile 8600 gt.
