It was looking nice til I got to the graphics card.

According to this its a good 36 points beneath the ATI 3450 (a large amount when you consider it only scored 131 :|), and the 3450 is known as a **** card.

Also considering that you could get the identical or better specs on a Dell laptop merely a day or so ago for 440£.....

Meh, if you wan the Bluetooth and the Samsung instead of Dell badge its not bad. However the webcam is 1.3mp instead of 2mp, and the screen is 1280x800 (its tiny in height, hence why I sold my other laptop). The 3 in 1 memory card reader is nice, but nothing deal breaking or making

Interested in getting this laptop and was wondering can anyone suggest any alternatives for this laptop with similar spec or better at the same price or lower?
