Hi guys,

I am looking to purchase a smaller laptop to carry around.  I currently have a Toshiba P100 - 17" screen, 512mb 7900GS graphics.

I just went into Sony's website and found this model (http://www.sony.co.nz/products/product/computer/vaio-notebook/vgnfz17g.jsp)

Just wondering, what is the 8400M GT comparable to?  A GeForce 7600?  7900?

I am looking to run games such as Flight Simulator.  It would be a bonus if I could run it on a smaller laptop.

Thanks guys!

It would almost be comparible to a 7800GS.

The 7900GS would be quite a bit better than what you are looking at

Thanks for your help!

So needless to say, the GeForce 8600m is a lot better than GeForce 7900GS, correct?:)

Well I'm not sure about the mobile versions but the desktop 8600GT is comparible to a 7900GS up to a high resolution and then the 7900GS leaves it behind
