This looks to be a decent game laptop for those interested.


Trainzing since 12-2003
As a portable, it has a decent graphics chip, and not the Intel GM45, which is great for videos on Youtube and that's it. The ATI 7690 chipset is not a bad mobile graphics chipset. According to Notebook Check, this is rated as a Class-1 video card.

I posted this because I know many people look for laptops for Trainz, and at this price this might be worth looking at since it gives comparable system builders a run for their money.

I wonder why the other three people didn't look at this, but instead started new threads on laptops?

Typical users, I guess.
