For those amongst us looking for a laptop on the cheap; AsusTek is apparently about to make things a little easier on the hip pocket for the budget conscious. According to the source and confirmed by ASUS, the electronics giant intends to release five inexpensive laptops this year, priced between $199 and $550.

Asustek confirmed reports that it would launch five cheapo laptops this year, priced between $199 and $550. The Taipei Times said the models will have seven inch screens using AU Optronics flat panels, and Intel's Solid State Disk tech using flash memory and with capacities up to 40GB.
Intel said yesterday in Beijing that flash memory does become inefficient over a period of time, but if you consider the writes and re-writes, it is still a useable technology.

The pricing on these small laptops is certainly nothing to be ignored, and it may well make laptop accesibility for the masses more realistic.

ok so here my dilemma
My ram is rated 6400 and is meant to do 800 mhz ,
According to cpu z it can do 266 mhz 4-4-4-10
and 400 mhz 5-5-5-15 so theoracticall if i put my latencies to 5-5-5-15 i should be able to get 400*9 =3.6 ghz easily with 1.5 vcore . Is that the case ?
It is said lower latencies are better for games , but will a 300 mhz increase in the cpu (currently @ 366 * 9 4-4-4-10) make up for the higher latency

Increase in CPU speed and ram speed will make up for higher latencies me thinks. Try and benchmark both settings using 3DMARK06, Aquamark 3 and the games that u play.

hmmm ok il try it out later

I Remeber this was one of the first Questions i posted here .... eventually i just Benched it

IME on the Ath-XP platform higher RAM clockspeed gives a better performace that lower latencies .. there is also a article hidden on tomshardware sumwer take a sneeky peeky there

But on C2D more bandwidth and higher clockspeeds is king :)

hmm probs , i tried @ 5-5-5-15 400 * 9 v ram 2.3 vcore 1.5 no succes i tried 395*9 390 * 9 still no succses in booting , put it back 367*9 4-4-4-10 vram 2.25 vcore 1.5 chipset 1.65
