Also at PC World for the same price (they are of course part of the same group)

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/product.php?sku=740908

And Dixons (they are the same company as well)

http://www.dixons.co.uk/product.php?sku=740908

Not bad for a 17" laptop, pity it is Vista Home Basic.

This is the model that all the mobile networks are giving away with their top mobile broadband packages.

Doesn't this usually mean it's no good.

No, the mobile networks aren't giving these away, you have to sign a contract for a year or more for £30 each month. Work that one out! You don't get anything for nothing!

I dropped my netbook today and the screen is now f***** and also not covered under the warranty :(
I paid £250 for it (10inch netbook, 80gb hard disk, 2gb ram, XP) almost a year a go from PcWorld so the specs for this Compaq laptop seem ok for the price?

I also wanna use XP not Vista home basic, any ideas how I can get XP for this laptop?

Many thx.

Actually for that price laptop is very weak. With this specification it can't even run Vista properly.

Any onboard graphics will normally be poorer than a dedicated card and in this case its true, but the 4500MHD is not significantly slower.

But when it comes to playing games these cards struggle see this site for card comparison.

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Comparison-of-Grafic-Cards.130.0.html

To quote it:

A new feature of the GMA chip, are the integrated HD video-decoding functions. The GM45 is able to decode HD-videos in the formats AVC, VC-2, and MPEG-2 to help the CPU. This way a Blu-Ray playback should also be possible with a low end CPU (only with the 533 MHz clocked version in the GM45 and GS45).
