      Hi Guys,

      I currently grind on a 4 yr old laptop…its a pentium dual core with 3 GB ram and the fan does not work either so it heats up. Untill some time ago i could grind the 180s on it 16-24 tables at a time with PT3 then i changed to HM2 duno if thats the problem…but now its freezing up and sometimes at critical moments in a tourney.

      I am planing to buy a laptop any suggestions…heard SSD is good anyone used it ? I dont want a crazy over priced one…but a decent one to handle upto 12-16 tables across PS and FT.

      hem2 is doing it.. it really is system-resource hungry..

      go for Dell with widest screen available and which suits your budget.. plus you can customize it online and order it from there itself.. I really like their online ordering process which enables us to customize.. don’t compromise on RAM.. go for extra RAM..

      Edit: check this one..

      Looks good Vinay thanks but has anyone used a SSD and does it give significant performance difference

      What’s a SSD? solid state hard disk? if it is that, don’t think it will affect much as most of (poker s/w) tasks are being performed on RAM.. SSD are more robust/reliable and faster in transferring data and all that..

      THe read write speed of a SSD is faster so HEM will work fater…each hand goes to ur hard disk and comes back as HUD… question is if there is a significant advantage to invest a bomb on it
