i was thinking of buying one.
but i read at http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070805111152AAm74aJ that the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 was horrible. It is not even really a graphics card. It is built into your motherboard, and leeches off your other hardware in order to get the picture onto the screen.
is that true?

Is this refurbished?

graphics being integrated into the mother board is very, very typical of laptops, especially ones at this price.

TopCashBack do not use this company anymore.

Correct. It steals a tiny bit of the RAM and you can usually configure this in the BIOS, although typically it's 32-64MB. Like I said, tiny and pretty insignificant.

The only real consequence is, as mentioned, it makes it poor for 3D games and any kind of 3D rendering (unlikely to be done on a budget laptop).
#9
945 chipset is definitely outdate, will prefer GMA965/ X3100.

According to Wikipedia:
"The GMA 950 (including 945)shares the same architectural weakness as the GMA 900: no hardware geometry processing. Neither basic (DX7) hardware transform and lighting,[2] nor more advanced vertex shaders (DX8 and later) are handled in the GMA hardware."

"The GMA X3000 for desktop was "substantially redesigned" when compared to previous GMA iterations[6] and it is used in the Intel G965 north bridge controller.[7] The GMA X3000 was launched in July 2006.[8] X3000's underlying 3D rendering hardware is organized as a unified shader processor consisting of 8 scalar execution units. Each pipeline can process video, vertex, or texture operations. A central scheduler dynamically dispatches threads to pipeline resources, to maximize rendering throughput (and decrease the impact of individual pipeline stalls.) However, due to the scalar nature of the execution units, they can only process data on a single pixel component at a time.[9] The GMA X3000 supports DirectX 9.0 with vertex and pixel Shader Model 3.0 features."

With 945, you might not be able to experience the full power of Windows Vista whereas X3100 does do the job.

Also, it only comes with DDR2 533 rahter than the most popular DDR2 667/800.

Wish it had an intgerated webcam!

That doesn't really matter at all as the CPU only has a 533 MHz bus! It wouldn't really take advantage of faster RAM.

On board graphics share the system memory, so they're not as fast as a card with dedicated memory, on the other hand they use less power and are cheaper.

I might have been tempted by the 17" one, but I ordered one of these http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/219024/acer-extensa-7620g-laptop-17-core-2/ over the weekend which has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT graphics card, but cost £93.68 more.

Issue indeed if you fancy playing recent games... Most of the ones released recently refuse to run on my lappie, they don't even recognise the Intel chipset as a graphics card.

But laptops are not usually gaming machines, so brilliant bargain nonetheless. Voted hot!

Just one thing... It says 120GB in the title, but it's actually 160GB, isn't it?

The problem when anyone posts a bargain laptop deal is that everyone derides its specs, lack of discrete graphics, slower RAM etc etc.

We're talking about a laptop for £300. I'm not sure quite what some people expect. This will do everything that the vast majority of consumers want to do, and do it well. It's not a bad looking laptop either, especially if it's the model with the brushed aluminium palm rest.

Voted hot.
#16
Ho would this compare to a Dell 1510 which is configured similarly?

Specs? :?

The performance of a laptop pretty much sits solely on its specs. The brand doesn't make much difference.

If the Dell is a similar spec then performance will be similar. Simple as that, though there are a few different aspects that will affect performance in different ways for different activities.

Also, generally more money buys you a faster machine :p

Agree completely.

However, some people do need it spelled out for them. No offence intended to anyone, but it's quite possible someone could buy this laptop expecting it to be able to do everything.

If the laptop has 2GB RAM, a decent, dual-core CPU, a HD larger than 100GB and a DVDRW drive - as this does - then it's going to suit the majority of people who buy laptops and it will perform well for a while yet. That's a lot of performance for the money. It just won't suit gamers and perhaps multimedia professional, who usually know to buy something with a better GPU etc. anyway.
#19
FWIW my HP Compaw nx7400 which was £600 9 months ago has roughly the same specs (2GHz C2D, 2GB DDR667, 120GB HDD, 15.4" screen, Intel GMA) and does everything (except gaming) fine.
#20
Just for information in case anyone is considering this laptop.....actually do searches on MT6839b and u'll see it got very good reviews last year.
I bought the Gateway mx6933b from Play.com over a year ago (£530 ish if I remember).
It's a very similar spec to this..2gb ram, 160 HD, same screen, intergrated 950 graphic card. I haven't upgraded to Vista ( it came with both OS's) as it runs perfectly well in XP.
Good points - it does everything I want except demanding graphic work (games obviously). Under normal use it is totally silent....the fan doesn't kick in unless it's under a fair bit of strain. It's pretty well built.
Bad points...front headphone/ mic ports can get in way if using mousepad. Internal speakers r pretty ****, but let's face it...all laptop internal speakers are farily useless anyway.
I'd say it was definitely a good buy.

I need to point out graphic card is no longer only for gaming today, but also watching HD videos as well.

I was going to mention this myself. Without a Blu-Ray drive though, you'd be limited to HD downloads unless you upgraded the drive.

For only slightly more at £324.99 you can get a larger hard drive, better processor, i think better graphics card and n integrated webcam....not too sure about the make though?

Also, I see bigpockets r doing it for same price. They indicate that it's "As New" so I think they might be refurbs. Still come with a warranty tho and should be ok I guess. Bit naughty if ukdvdr aren't mentioning this...mind u I did a search on them and there seems to be quite a few folk complaining about their customer service. I think these models will be ones sold in Tesco and ToysRUs before they were pulled out.

Sorry, it is the MX8716b that is out of stock.
I have only just noticed that the thread title refers to the MX8716b but the rest of the thread is for the MT6839b:?
