Hello, I am trying to decide what laptop to get before the school semester starts. I used to have an Acer Aspire 5050, but I sold it on eBay after a financial blip.
I work fine using my desktop at home and workstation at work. During class, I will need to give the instructor my full attention, and more often then not there are desktops for every chair. So I don’t need a laptop.
However, I might want a small Asus EeePC - like thing. It would be something to check email, websites, and do a little programming with on the go. Perhaps I’d like to do some modeling on it, so it will have to have basic 3d capabilities. This system will need to be easy to travel abroad with, but it does not need to be nearly as powerful as the desktops I use.
Has anyone tried to run Blender or an old game like Unreal with the Asus? And if so, how well did it run? Feel free to suggest other laptops that might work out, but I prefer answers from people who know for sure.
