    Take into consideration that prices are valid for specified configurations, and that they can vary a lot with different configurations...
    The configurations as presented are what I'd call "suitable" to specific notebook; e.g. 2x100GB disks in RAID1 for Rock notebooks.


    I hope this chart helps you when making a decision about which Notebook or TabletPC to buy,
    especially if you consider playing latest games on it, or using 3D intense programs, even MS Vista.


    Information for this chart was gathered from two of the greatest notebook related sources:
    1) NotebookReview.com website, Forum Graphics Card Guide --- my thread 3DMark05 for various notebooks
    2) RockDirect.co.uk website, Forum Benchmarking Index --- my thread 3DMark05 for various notebooks
    I recommend checking both of these sources, to see more ifnormation and various useful opinions of posters...
    Note that one of the important information missing in specifications provided is warranty! I recommend checking that too.


    Important instructions for further researching:
    -- Clicking on 3DMark05 scores in 1st column will take you to notebook reviews (if available).
    -- Clicking on prices in 2nd column will take you to online shops (if available).
    -- Clicking on notebok names in 4th column will take you to official sites of notebook producers (if available).


    Sorted by 3DMark05 Scores (1st column - higher is better) - all default settings, no overclocking
    Note1: For easier distinction font for TabletPCs is in different color than font for Notebooks.
    Note2: For playing modern 3D games at medium settings/resolution look for notebooks which scored above 2000.
    Notebooks which scored above 4000 are capable of playing most modern 3D games at high settings/resolution.
    (Take this information just as a 'guidline', since 3DMark05 is only a synthetic benchmark - good one, but still...)

    Sorted by Score/Price ratio (3rd column - higher is better)
    Note: "Score/Price ratio" represents how many 3DMark05 points you get for EACH $1, in other words "speed for money".
    Keep in mind though, that some notebooks have 2 GB memory vs 1 GB memory, and 2x 100 GB disk vs 100 GB disk etc.

    Let me put here my personal opinion for best notebooks in specific categories based on the above tables:
    -- Best value for gaming & work (3D apps etc.): Rock Xtreme CTX -- due core CPU, 2GB RAM, great portability for such power, good price
    -- Best for gaming & work (3D, video editing, ...): Rock Xtreme 64 -- 64bit CPU for WinVista, 2x 100 GB HDDs (RAID!), 2GB RAM, but heavy
    -- Best value for gaming: FSC Amilo Xi 1546 -- faster CPU than the Toshiba below (better for work), 2GB RAM, great price
    -- Second best value for gaming: Toshiba P105-S921 -- huge 160GB disk for many space-needy games, great price
    -- Fastest for gaming: Rock Xtreme SL -- much better 3DMark05 score than Dell XPS M1710! 2GB RAM, 19" LCD, but heavy
    -- Most portable for gaming: Asus W3J -- very good gaming capabilities, it's thin and light (2.2kg)
    -- Cheapest duo core for work but weaker gaming: Toshiba A6 -- for gaming is weaker than Dell 9300, but for multi-tasking way better
    -- Cheapest of all here and still good for gaming: Dell 9300 -- for now you can still get one even under $700 (with coupon), single CPU though
    -- Fastest TabletPC, good for gaming: Gateway M285-E -- it's fast, it's light, up to 8.5h battery! (adding 1GB of RAM not cheap tho, +$450)
    -- TabletPC for 3D work & decent for gaming: Toshiba M7-117 -- it's fast, it's light, excellent battery life, for size it's perfect for 3D apps

    The above chart was originally started in NotebookReview.com forum, but since I just noticed that fast graphics cards are coming into TabletPC arena, I thought to make a copy of it in here as well, in hope to help those deciding to buy a Notebook or TabletPC which is good at 3D graphics too...

    Please let me know for any other TabletPCs which I should include in the chart, and if you have 3DMark05 scores for it I'd appreciate it....

    Ouch, I'm not hopeful for Tablet numbers, since all those machines have ATI X700+ or Nvidia 6800+,and 3D Mark is really about video card performance. I don't think the Intel's that are found in alot of the tablet's will even come close. In case anyone is curious though, 3dMark 05 comes in a free flavor that people can benchmark. I'd definately like to see how the numbers look like.

    So, except Gateway M285-E which has an ATI X1400 card with 64MB and the ability to use main memory
    up to 256MB, and Toshiba M7-117 which has a nVidia Quadro NVS 110M with 128MB (this nVidia is alike
    nVidia Go7300 & ATI X1300) are there any other TabletPCs capable of decently playing modern 3D games?
