hotukdeals.com/ite…810

HDMI connector could come in handy
i assume thats for linking it upto a big screen

Does anyone know what the story is with the integrated graphics card on this laptop? Are there any probs with it for playing DVDs or is it only an issue if you want to play computer games?

I had been looking at this Samsung for a friend, but am not sure how it compares. It is out of stock now in any case comet.co.uk/sho…ion

I think this not a bad deal. But this one seems better: hotukdeals.com/ite…1aq

Its and ok deal but the CPU is getting bit out of date now Core 2 Duo is preffered.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD small and light

Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Core Icon 533 MHz, 10 - unified, DX10 | Memory Icon , 0 Bit

ATI Radeon Xpress 1250:

Only older games can be played fluently with these graphics chips (if they were not too demanding). Shared memory graphic cores in this category got the advantage of less heat production and longer battery runtimes. For office, internet, image processing, and video editing tasks these graphics chips are still useable without any restrictions.

Well according to benchmarks the processor comes out identical to
an intel core 2 duo 2GHz T7300.

Is this not the successor to Core2Duo, the Montevina chipset/CPU?

Just tried it again and it now works, strange. So for the price is this a good deal or am i missing something?

I can't find this lappy for sale when I do a search on the hp site. Can anyone give tips on how to find it other than direct linking? Not that I don't trust you or anything.

Just search for >>>>>>>>>>>>> FW791EA

Then add HPSPLDIS ass the dicount code

Open homepage via Quidco.

Click on 'HP laptops' (middle of page)

Click on the first product (from £329) and it's the second laptop on the next page (£399)

If going through Quidco I'd use the HPQUIDCO code. It does the same job, but removes any possible problem with the Quidco being refused for using a money off voucher.

This looks like a pretty good buy & I'm looking for one for my daughter. It's at least £399 elsewhere and I've been very happy with my HP laptop (so far!)

the image looks like it is of the 17" version

does that mean when i download something the fastest it will gop is 56 kb/s? i dont quite understand...this seems like a brilliant deal but people don't seem too excited, whats the catch?

and also whats the difference betwwen a notebook and a laptop? it does have all the ususal stuff a pc does right, like a cd/dvd drive etc..

All,

A bit of advice needed really.

I just bought the Samsung NC10 netbook from Pay.com last night, and I am thinking whether I should cancel that order and buy this instead.

I ideally want a portable machine to browse the internet with and do basic University work on (Final Year dissertation etc.)

Any advice would be much appreciated....

yeah, and would this be the best laptop for this price at the moment?

If you use the internal modem then it will be slow. I'm guessing that's simply for dial up. My HP laptop has the same wireless spec as this one and I simply use it from the broadband router. It will connect via an ethernet cable to a broadban router as well if you don;t have wireless. Connected to a broadband router the only thing limiting the speed will be the speed of your broadband connection.

It's not a brilliant deal, just a pretty good one. If you are in the market for a fairly decent laptop then it's worth considering, but it's not a must buy for the sake of it.

I got the G70-110EA which has a bigger screen and better processor. Very nice laptop

They are the same. A netbook, on the other hand, is a scaled down version for portability and sacrifices a number of features for weight, such as DVD drives etc.

westham08 - it has a modem but no one uses these nowadays. More imprtantly it has a network slot for an ethernet cable or even better (as in most laptops nowadays) it has:
Wireless technologies 802.11b/g WLAN i.e. a wireless card for connecting to wireless routers.

Seems a good price for a good specced laptop. There is also a good deal at Tesco for an Acer for £349 - similar spec. Voted hot.

So this one and the tesco one are very similar then? is there no definate better one?

These are two very different machines. The Samsung NC10 is a lightweight machine, extremely portable and ideal for surfing the net and doing dissertations etc. It isn't a full featured PC like the HP laptop. It has a smaller screen, less ram and a smaller hard drive, to mention a few things . A netbook isn't a replacement for a PC. The HP laptop is.

I have spent a few hours on line looking about and would say these are the best 2 deals at the moment. There are a couple of Dells (1525s) at PC World but they are around £430.

I'd have a HP over an Acer anyday, based on experience, but others might differ.

Great deal will order one too !

so if this were used for the next 6/7 years say,
simply for A level and university work and generelly used by 1 person only, no pc games or anything past football manager, and genereal intnet browsing, would this be a sufficient standard of notebook or would it become out of date and unusable?

also is 6 cell battery enough? another concern though is overheating, can anyone help? i really want to make sure im not missing out on any key features that a computer would have...and as for the modem thing, i could connect it wirelessly to broadband, but if it wasnt, then would it go at 56kb/s?

Sorry to be a nuisance but what about this toshiba deal, is this the best value and spec then?

This is plenty of laptop for your needs

but the battery on all laptops will die after a couple of years, so you might have to replace that

The Toshiba and Acer I would say are slightly better specs than the HP in my opinion. All 3 would do the job though.

Thanks guys thats helped a lot

If you have broadband and an ADSL USB router then you could plug it in to this via an ethernet cable (for a couple of £) and would get whatever speed your ISP provides you. I would recommend a wireless router though if you want to take advantage of a laptop's portability around the house.
