This was advertised a couple of weeks back but that deal expired - this is now 98p cheaper...

The big difference between this and most sub £400 Laptops is that it is not Integrated Graphics but has ATI Radeon™ HD 4200 which produces HDMI output, great for judder free movies!

Radeon HD 4200 is part of the 785G chipset. It's integrated into the board. The HDMI output doesn't affect smoothness of video playback but the integrated decoders do.

I need a laptop for my daughters birthday. She loves The Sims 3 which is resource hungry and also fussy about graphics cards. Does anybody know if this would do the job?
Although this graphics card isn't listed, is it capable?:-

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly. Intel integrated chipsets featuring underclocked parts will not perform adequately.

Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants will have low settings selected, but should run satisfactorily.

I don't get how this deal can be hotter than mine from a week ago =|

CPUs are comparable, as is the memory and display size&resolution.
The HP has twice as much HDD space, and a graphics card that is 3 to 5 times faster.
Only negatives are the £50 greater cost, and Vista rather than Windows 7 :S

Not sure. If you have a look at this link in the last column they give frame rates from Sims 3. The graphics cards/chips are listed in approximate descending order of speed and anything 30+ is generally considered playable, while 60+ is really smooth. The 4200 is about two-thirds down the list. They don't appear to have tested the 4200 with The Sims 3, but the chip immediately under it would make the game playable on medium settings, so my guess would be that the 4200 in this deal would too.

I voted your deal hot, but a lot of people were put off by it being a "renew" machine.

I'm sure somebody will have been grateful for your post but I didn't realise there is so much competition as to how hot a deal is, who posts first, etc as it appears to affect some people. You'll pull through.

What is the quality of the video from the web cam?

The only problem with the 4200 is that it uses shared graphics memory, which will slow it down and also take a chunk out of your RAM. Probably fine for most apps/games though.

This laptop is better for an extra £50ish if you're wanting Laptop gaming -

Comes with a dedicated HD4570 (I guess dedicated means not shared memory/IGP)
