Thanks, Jenny. I see 2 have Windows 8 and one has Windows 7. But the video card is the most important thing here... as Inland said, go for the 7640G video card. It's not the greatest, but I'm sure it will play most of your adventure games, plus it fits in your budget.

Ok I will take your advice you sure it won't matter about that one only having 4gb DDR? I just can't afford more my hours have been cut again now and we are in a desperate situation in uk. I mean I've applied to places I've previously been accepted for a job but just been turned down, make no mistake its a fight for a job here at minute :-( why anyone wants to come here is beyond me.

Don't get me started on benefits managed to get a sanction for not looking hard enough for a job when I had a part time one I just can't get another cos 200 after each one so I've been told.

I actually had a çome on from a well off guy once when I was doing my papers and leaflets too bad they didn't want me delivering to his street. I can't think why the guy wanted the free paper mind you his exact words were I've seen you for a while now how do I get you on my street. I felt like replying pay me £6.19 I don't get why he was coming onto me tho, maybe he liked fact I was doing minimum wage hard graft job. I never saw the guy again but I should have broken rułes and delivered him a free paper. My money worries could have been over.

Ritchiesbabe,

You're not alone.
Things are really bad here, too.
The country is going to hell in a handbasket and our elected representatives don't care; they're sitting pretty, unlike the rest of us in the lower 99%.
I wish you the best and hope things turn around for you.
For all of us.

In the meantime, enjoy your new laptop and try to get your mind off your troubles when you go adventuring.

Gil.

I definitely need to drift after getting told I didn't pass Asda online personality test after previously passing magic interview. It's no wonder people get stressed out and turn to drink or drugs cos its demoralising not having enough to do. They try tell us there's jobs but its awful to be scratching about in a fight for the few there are. Made me laugh one job has basically finished now yet they won't pay redundancy cos they probably can't afford to but I can still say I'm employed for a reference. They just told me they intend on giving me leaflets to deliver in near future but if things don't pick up no one wants to advertise. I'm actually forced into mandatory work activity at the minute its ok but it's definite punishment being made to do 30 hours for 4 weeks with no chance at a job from it at end of it. I'm trying to see if I can at least get a qualification out of it.

I have a question. I have a new iMac with a Nvidia Geforce GT 640M 512 MB. Is this a good gaming card?

It should play most adventure games (as long as there are Mac versions for it).
Have you tried any with it?
You may get a little "sticky cursor" with the most demanding new adventure games, but most should work without problem.

So just to clarify people's advice is I go for the bottom one or the middle one? Sorry if being thick but both graphic cards are the same apart from numbers in brackets

Jenny thanks for your response. I have only played one of the newer Nancy Drew games and it played just fine. At some point I'm hoping to be able to download one of the older Tomb Raider Games from the Apple Store to see if it will work.

If it's one of the early ones, there shouldn't be a problem.
