Hey guys and girls, My cousin is selling me his laptop which is a Packard Bell Easynote MB88 and consists: T5450 1.66GHz 2MB L2 667FSB, 2GB RAM, 8600M GS 512mb, 160GB for £100. I'm getting it for sure, but I wanna hear what you guys think of it. He's only had it for about 1 1/2 years and hes barely used it.
But 1 thing that hit my mind about this was, I heard alot of 8600M and 8400M had alot of issues with overheating which causes the card to die, due the heat > cool cycle of when you play games, stop playing games and the solder on the card becomes soft when its heated up and cracks when it cools down. Personally, I have a laptop cooling pad. So would that help?
(P.S. He never used it for gaming, just for browsing, watching movies/anime and maybe occasion games of Warcraft 3)
Thanks in advance.
