CPU: Intel i3-2350M, 2.30Ghz (I think it has 2 cores, 4 threads)
Graphics Card: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3000
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
I'm not sure if I should return this laptop and buy another one with a better graphics card. I'm not into gaming, I won't play at all but I do a lot of watching live video tv (you know, those live streamings to watch sports, and maybe movies too).
What do you guys think? Will it be enough with those specs?
So far, I've been testing the laptop by watching several football (soccer) matches. I'm able to watch even the HD streams but after some minutes (maybe 10 or 15) it uses to get slower (I mean: first I get some minutes of fluent video, then some seconds of something that looks like a powerpoint presentation of pictures, and then video again for some seconds, and then pictures again....). That happens with almost every stream... always after some minutes of great (in terms of quality and fluency) reception.
I hope you guys can help me with your opinions, because I just have some days to think about returning it or keeping it.
If you can provide a link to a site with free HD content I could test how well the Intel HD 3000 handles HD content on my laptop. I've searched on Youtube for some HD content, but they were all relatively short; around 4 - 6 minutes.
