Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

We really don't enconter "mixed" chipsets anymore. A chipset is normally manufacted by one company and is composed of 2 computer chips-the southbridge and the northbridge. As I understand it, the...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

Another option is to use a 7200 rpm drive internally in the laptop. Some laptops support second HDs. This is what I am currently doing and I am getting very good results. I picked up a 60g Hitichi...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

AudioCase, I don't think anybody was really expecting a laptop with an Ali chip in it to work, but since this has a Pentium chip I was wondering if you disabled Hyperthreading in the BIOS?

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

I also noticed there is something strange about Dell's price calculator on the website. You don't always get the same options. I noticed sometimes you get the option of 1 or 3 years...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

Allen, it looks to me like the Centrino CPU technology is the best out there and easily beats desktops. Plus, I find that it does a good job on BTD. I found some info on future developments and it...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

Vishalj didn't do the Davec test, since he only had two plugins on each audio track and none on the aux. That would equal about 12 tracks, maybe, on the Davec scale.

About the Z4 laptops, it...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

qtrguy4,

Your problems with your Centrino laptop are very disheartening. I realize this is a long shot, especially if Digi tech reps could not help, but I had a similar problem with my Intel Asus...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

The Toshiba A25 model you are considering has the AliCyber Aladdin-P4 chipset. This sound like an AliMagik chipset, which may cause problems with PT. It also has a 4500 rpm HD, which is not as...

IBM T41

I used the Mbox for the test with XP Pro. I have also looked at performance with the 002r. This laptop does not have a firewire port, so a PCMCIA firewire card is necessary. I have an ADS Pyro...

Re: Still here :)

Well, I would have to agree that the Centrino processors look to be a winner, at least from my initial checks. I have been looking at getting a new laptop for work, and wanted to make sure that it...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

Looks like Shan's Acer notebook runs about $1850 USD. Harmony Computers shows the Acer TravelMate TM-662LM for $1819 with the same specs as noted above. It does look like a pretty good deal,...

Re: Reports HERE!

RockArtist, nice job on testing and thanks for posting the results for the rest of us! I was leaning toward the Centrino, but I think that will pretty much clinch it for me.

About the battery...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

Rock Artist, thanks for the Centrino link. I have to admit that the centrino looks pretty tempting, especially with the usage on batteries. 8-10 hours is hard to believe. I saw that Dell offers a...

Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

cooocooo1, nice results! Looks like this is a pretty new model. Where did you pick it up? I am wondering if this might be suitable for a 002. Does it have a firewire port? Noise?
