Peripherals Plus Athlon 800

This card has a whopping 64MB of memory, which is useful for playing games at ultra-high resolutions; the machine's score of 2750 in 3DMark 2000 did seem a little low, though, when compared to systems sporting GeForce cards.

Other system components include 128MB of 133MHz SDRAM, an internal 56Kbps modem, and a 20GB drive that has a fast 7200rpm spin speed. The sound card is built into the motherboard, which itself is very expandable - containing no fewer than six PCI expansion slots. The computer's housing is an AOpen ATX case with three CD-ROM-sized bays as well as three hard drive-sized bays, and its power supply is a hefty 250W. A Samsung 17in monitor provides display output and Altec Lansing ACS-33 speakers supply the sound output.

A software bundle of Lotus SmartSuite and Norton AntiVirus is part of the package. For support, a three-year on-site insurance- underwritten warranty is provided.

Pros: DVD, CD-RW

Cons: Relatively low 3D Mark 2000

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
