Geeks and gamers: Help my son, please
: For his 13th birthday, we got our son, Jake, a new Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop. The problem is, it won’t play some of his games and is jerky on others because, apparently, the built-in, top-of-the-line video card on the motherboard isn’t game-friendly.
Help. Is there some adjustment we should make? Is this a hopeless laptop for games? I know nothing about such things. So please help. Details here on Jake’s blog. Please leave comments with helpful advice there. Thanks.
: UPDATE: I’m now told the problem is that we got a Celeron instead of a Pentium. Dell is great! They agreed to an exchange with not an ounce of fuss. But before I do this, tell me if that’s right.
