looking at new laptops, stuck at comparing graphics cards!

Post by skywalker »

hey folks!
my current laptop can only run up to resolume 2.41 and so i'm looking to buy a new one within the next few months.

as my new laptop will be used as my personal computer as well as VJing gigs, i've decided i'd like to try and get a laptop which i can dualboot windows 7 and OSX on.
i found a list of laptops that are compatable with running OSX and the lenovo IdeaPad U410 seemed like a nice choice.

its graphics card is a NVIDIA® GeForce® 610M (1GB), resolume arena requires a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 or better graphics card, i'm assuming that the one in the lenovo won't be good enough due to its number being lower? please could someone confirm/deny if this is the case or not?
Thanks!
-Luke

yeah, my plan is to run resolume on windows, the mac OS will just be used for a few mac specific personal things, not anything to do with VJing.
