    ok I was thinking about getting the gateway M-285 with these upgrades Intel® Core™ Duo Processor T2600 (2.16 GHz, 667MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache). 2048MB 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM (2-1024MB modules).ATI Mobility™ Radeon® X1400 64MB Graphics featuring Avivo™ display technology.80GB 7200rpm Serial ATA hard drive.

    Ok I will be using this for some intense games and a lot of gaming. Also would be using this for a lot of animation, note taking and anything else for school. I would also be downloading music and clips or whatnot. Also would be watching dvds. Would this be the best bet for my needs as a tablet or is there a better option for me. Best performance is a must and money is not an option. I could not find a tablet with amd processor so is there any better tablet for my needs or is there one coming out very soon. I start school on july 17 and i know it take about a month to get it made and shipped to you so I need help fairly fast.

    A 64MB graphics card is not going to play games. Thats really really low spec.
    Get anything with a 128mb card at least, the Geforce Go is a great card.

    Depends on what kind of game you want to play....

    Sure a recent 3D 'shoot-em-up' will have to have a lot of settings knocked back but an older one will play just fine on a 64MB card

    Lol you don't know what your talking about man

    Less memory just means you have to run at lower resolutions, doesn't mean the game is going to bog down.

    Mike_Check,

    ATI Avivo Display Technology features an enhancement to images and video, on displays, to offer ". . . PVR, HDTV and next-generation HD disc capabilities with vibrant, sharp images, and the smoothest video playback ever offered by ATI." It's like the comparison of watching a widescreen DVD movie on a regular TV versus an HDTV. For devices like the PSP or iPod; it converts video through a video convertor to have the correct format to view on such devices. There are more features that it includes, see the site listed below.

    For more information, see the ATI Avivo Overview Site.

    Not necessarily. 64MB generally will not play any modern games and the game will bog down considerably.

    That said, are there any tablets with 128mb cards? As far as i knew they haven't been developed yet?

    My 6200 with 64mb dedicated can run Oblivion... Granted its at 640x480 but thats due to the low mem, otherwise it runs decently.
