PostSubject: I'd like one too please   Wed 05 Nov 2014, 1:09 pm

This game is some to blame for the deterioation of this mac. When I bought it in 2008 I discovered JK2 soon after, it had its original motherboard fried in late 2011 because my addiction online was so that my computer was rarely turned off fully. Luckily it was just inside it's guarantee so I got it a new brain but over a period of a few years it has grown slow again.

That is probably because the battery expanded into uselessness during its time at sea earlier this year. The 'b', 'f', 'command' and 'fn' keys don't work. Also the diskreader is icecreamed (that's my personal censor).

I'd like a new computer - A laptop, of mac variety. I can deal with second hand, though ideally under £500.

Halp please!

I used to be a devoted Mac user. I'm glad I made the switch to PC simply because games lol

Not to mention you can always swap parts in a PC out. After I thought about it, it seemed pretty shitty that Mac would make their computers impossible to modify the hardware of. However I don't know how much hardware you can modify in a laptop either

Can't help much with mac.
The newer mac versions are a complete locked system.
You can't even open them up without going to a apple store :(

Don't waste your money on another Mac, just get a PC. You can find very powerful laptops for cheap prices.

If you have somewhere to live permanently (or somewhat), i'd recommend a desktop PC. :3

I found this, it should run JK2 and other games just fine.

Mac's aren't good when it comes to gaming imo.

Well...I'd say its a piece of crap Very Happy
But the price is in reference to the item i guess.

Shld run jk2 pretty good but there is better stuff for the same price x.x

Kernow, what is your preferred budget in first place? How much you want/intend to invest?

I assume he doesn't mind a used computer? (and if so under 500) (unless he means a new one for 500 as well)

Ah, used hmm, but then the computer shouldn't be older than 2 years imo. 500 Ł is roughly 640 euro and for that you can get some decent computer (id prefer new one though).

You can get some pretty decent laptops for £500 too. I probably wouldn't recommend Currys\PC World because their collection is pretty shit these days.

It has a powerful GPU, so it should be able to run even BF3 if he wanted to. And it has enough RAM to support multiple screens and background programs.

I don't want a gaming computer otherwise I would have bought a PC ages ^_^

The only games I'd play is JK2 and Rome Total War 2 - I know the latter is a demanding game but I can deal with lower graphics ^_^

Thanks for the suggestions

Take a look at these eBay listings, Kernow. They're the same model MacBook Pro from 2011, strong processors for that year. Still about 70% as strong as today's processors in a new Macbook Pro. The first one has 4GB of RAM and the second one has 8GB of RAM. Both are enough RAM, but if you wanted to spend a little extra for more RAM that's your call. If I had to make the call I probably wouldn't, since you could just buy your own RAM later for the difference if you found you wanted to. Check the details to see if one of them has something specific you want, for example the more expensive one has a newer version of Mac OSX installed (I don't know how Mac OS updates work, if they're free, etc.). Note that buying used always runs the risk of the battery not performing as well as buying a new laptop would. You can't buy a new Mac laptop for close to £500, sorry. Also note that postage is free for the first one, and £15 for the second one unless you pick it up in person in London, which they offered.

Edit: looks like the second one was already bought or canceled. If you like these kinds of options, we could possibly schedule an Xfire date and find one together so the listings don't end by the time you see my messages. Razz

Thanks a lot Nick that really gives a good idea of the type of spec I would get at £500 which is relatively a pretty low price investment for an apple product.

How can you tell the difference between the different year models?

I wasn't keen to make a purchasing move straight away but it's inevitable sooner or latter with the quality of this mac deterioating. I just wanted an idea of what I can get for that sort of investment, shame it can't be 15'' screen (what I have now) but you can't really picky I suppose for that amount.

I would definately get a 15 inch, not many options below £1000 for decent models. :S

My budget is roughly 800-1000€ which can be under 1280$ i think. May look like alot but for that price the laptop i looked up is definitelly worth of and when i build up the cash ill buy it (at least i wish so).

I dont have experience with HP but i heard alot about them from friend who is IT guy and he often said HPs are prone to overheating so i myself wouldnt go for them (However what is your experience, cat?). My previous laptop i had 2 yrs and it was toshiba with vista and 1gb ram (now when i look on this setup again after time i gotta say thank god the monitor suffered heart attack - i.e. complete failure, so i could buy something better)

Never saw your comment Yodah. I think your budget is in the same as to what I would wish to spend for want I want, not what I can afford xD I would want to spend about £800-£1050 but its a large commitment and a large amount of what I have - Winter Hibernation in Kernow brrrrrrrrrrrrrr Razz

ON the plus side by coincidence my old man found just a SPARE Macbook Pro OS X 15" Laptop battery. I imagine it must be my brothers....and guiltliy I heard from him recently that his Macbook Pro OS X 15" Laptop battery (07 model) died the same way as mine did - by expanding into uselessness overtime.  

I have a new battery so my computer isn't dependant socket power anymore. My bro could easily afford a new one and has just moved house. Do I tell him? :O

And to finalize my computer preference - I'll save for a new mac overtime.
