Would you please not include the full specification in the original post as it takes up much to much space and most of it is not significant.

to be honest i think it actually quite helpful to have the full spec on the actual deal as you can scan down and get all the info you need.

And as for taking up too much space??? :roll:

its a bit of a minefield trying to get your head round the AMD vs intel debate and keep up with all the rebranding that goes on.

It really depends what you want to use it for. The TK 53 (Hawk 256) is not one of the newest processors but is comparable to some of the intel dual core (T2060) processors but it is not up to the power of the core duo or core2duo chips.

But for everyday use this will be absolutely fine, i doubt the processor will be the limiting factor for what you require it will most likely be the graphics card.

Hi

I have to agree and that the conversion table for AMD to Intel is a bit convoluted and hard to give a like for like comparison as each manufacturer fare better is different categories of data processing. There does not seem to be an obvious bottleneck when it comes to the overall spec and unfortunately the model of the graphics is not stated.

I’ve recently like what HP have been doing of late, good spec, good build and good pricing, can’t see where you can go wrong wit this apart from the usual 3D gaming.

BTW, I think I saw a voucher for 10% and free shipping from HP - here somewhere.


Many Thanks

I m afraid not, although that is a a better of the intergrated graphic chips. You ll struggle to play most of the modern 3D games even at low settings!

The problems with AMD CPUs that I find is that they seem to run so much hotter than Intel. So the fan kicks in much more often.

Personally my preference are Intel are the moment and it has been for a while. The truth is that right now AMD is still rather behind Intel in energy efficiency and performance.

Hi

As you said, although its not the best graphics card it will run games "ok" and i do stress the word ok on mediumish. But lets not miss the point here, its a great priced laptop that will cater for 95% of most users and we should not get carried away with wanting a magical box that does everything for 400 quid just yet. A good spec machine for a great price from a quality manufacturer.

As far as Intel vs AMD, a more descriptive explaination of what I said earlier is here:-

PS all my machinese are intel, I stopped buying AMD 3 years ago - I pride myself on silent PCs...screw performance 8).

Many Thanks

Are you by any chance paying for the bandwidth?

do you think I should w8 for after christmas, or shall I bag this while I can.

I just need a laptop for college work, and will need to take it to/from college daily.

Is this thin and portable as I was really looking for those laptop that are just slightly bigger then the A4 PAPER size (screen & keyboard) What size screen should I be looking for?

thanks in advance

This probably isnt the ideal portable machine for you. At 3.1Kg its a little on the heavy size however to get a truly portable notebook you are looking at quite a bit extra on top of this.

I think this is a good all round spec from a good manufacturer with excellent support. My sister has had 3 HP laptops from work and they seem like workhorses.....not the best to look at usually but well built.

For the price it will be hard to beat for spec and brand also the build quality is very good, as for the size of the notebook i would say it is about mid range.

#21
If this is the same laptop I bought from Play.com http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3499291/Hewlett-Packard-Pavilion-GZ974EA-AMD-Athlon-64-X2-TK53-2GB-160GB-DVD-SM-15-4-Vista-Home-Premium-Laptop-Notebook/Product.html then it doesn't have an integrated webcam, despite the item description saying otherwise.

Had the Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5535 for a few days and found it very slow for a core2duo also with fuji i found the build quality poor, sent i back and got full refund..

I went for the hp 6720s for £390 after cashback, and bought an extra gig from play for 13quid.
I was tempted with the 6715 you linked too, but I did not like the look of it, and it was pretty heavy.

It all depends on what you need, I wanted a light ish, thin work laptop.

:? how do you work that one out:?
