Hello,

I am looking for a Dell Inspiron 1520 Notebook. I have selected the following configuration :-

Processor : T5250 1.5GHz
RAM : 1GB
Graphics : 8600M GT
HardDisk : 160GB

I am in doubt, whether T5250 will be a bottleneck with 8600M GT or not. If this combination is not good then which combination will be best suited?

I don't think it will too bad, but you would see significant gains from either the T7100 or the T7300 (the 7300 especially with the larger cache 4mb instead of 2). I would definitely upgrade to one of the T7xxx series over the T5s.

If you're gaming I agree with L&W, get the T7100-7500 with the 7300 being the best balance of price/performance IMO.

If you can swing it 2GB is also handy for Vista gaming.

And if you're looking for DELL be sure to check out the coupons out there to help reduce the price, makes a big difference, and one of the main reasons to buy a DELL IMO.

That was a good pick up, I didn't notice that he only had 1gb of RAM. Even if you don't play a ton of games I think 2gb is the way to go.

Thank you very much. My doubts are solved. Also thank you for informing me about coupon codes. But don't know whether it will work for India or not.

I also got this laptop yesterday, except in the US. I got a T7500 with a 8600GT. I got 2GB RAM, with a 160GB 7200 RPM HD.
