    I dunno, there seems to be a considerable amount of people looking for Tablets with decent GPUs in them, plus with Vista needing at minimum fair graphics performance I rekon tablet manufacurers will end up putting some good gpus in. When however is the next question.

    So there are no tablets with decent GPU's in them currently?
    Hmm I am quite new to this, sorry for the question but I had assumed tablets were up to par with notebooks?

    Unfortunately no....
    Notebooks always get the hardware first in which then hopefully we then find the Tablet having the same or similar later.

    As an example; the updated Intel Core 2 Duo processors for desktop and notebooks PCs respectively, formely codenamed 'Conroe and Merom' will not see a Tablet just yet

    well just letting you all know I've decided to get a cheap-ish tablet and a gaming SFF desktop. Thanks for all the opinions even though it dind't really turn out the way I wanted :( Apart from that does anyone know of any tablets that you can choose the processors (single-core) in? I actually want one with no proc, no hdd and no ram. Anyone?

    Sorry Mike but are you saying you want to buy a bare bones core mono system with no processor, RAM or Hard Drive fitted?

    If so, I can't say I have heard of any retailer offering such a system.
    Mind you, it wouldn't hurt to ask I suppose.......

    yeah basically I am. I figured it would be easy to find one but what do you know it? Can anyone recommend a good solo core tablet? preferably closer to A4 size with an option of having a battery int he optical drive. Doesn't have to be new or anything just does it's job well.

    Thanks

    the new tecra has a QVS 110, which i *THINK* is the workstation equivalent to a 7400, and i think the gateway has the x1400, which is a better card, however, the gateway only has 64mb dedicated, where as the other has 128 or 256. so i think graphics performance will most likely be similar.

    The Gateway M285-E has an ATI X1400 card in it with 64MB GDDR3 and teh ability to use main memory up to 256MB

    I have played the Prey demo on it so far with no video lag or stuttering.

    (did not see the post above so I am repeating a bit)

    I can run UT2004 @ 1024x768 with all normal-high settings and get a constant 85 fps (which is the online cap) and that's plenty good for me.

    My M285 scored a 1946 on 3DMark05.
