Ok!Here's the deal, i got this laptop 4 xmas:

Asus X53SR-AP094C

Intel Core2 Duo T7250 (2x 2.00GHz)
2MB L2
2GB DDR2 667 (2x 1GB)
TFT 15.4" WXGA (1280 x 800)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD2400
896MB HyperMemory (128MB dedicated + 768MB shared)


What i don't like about this laptop is its size (huge!), lack of pratical stuff (like buttons 2 quickly access & play my MP3's with the PC off), and last, its plain ugliness(!).
What i'm looking 4 is a laptop that: is pratical, so i don't mind if it has a smaller than 15'' display; (if possible) has tasteful touches like HP's IR remote controllers that fit in PCMIA card space & that allow easy access 2

mp3's even with the PC off; can run games like NFS Pro Street, which shoud b the most demanding game i'll b playing (@ least 4 now!); if possible, not too ugly! (oh!btw disk space is no problem 4 me, so i'm gonna

leave that out of the equation).
So I'm thinking about returning it & getting another 1 4 a similar price ($150+old laptop tops!). Here r my (valid) options 4 the money on the store:

HP Pavilion Media Center dv6675ep

Intel Core2 Duo T7500 (2x 2.20GHz)
4MB L2
2GB DDR2 (2x 1GB)
TFT 15.4" BrightView WXGA (1280 x 800)
nVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
895MB TurboCache (128MB dedicated + 767MB shared)
IR remote controller


HP Pavilion Media Center dv2699ep Special Edition
(this 1's a bit more expensive than what i was willing 2 pay (+$500), but, if it's worth it...)

Intel Core2 Duo T7500 (2x 2.20GHz)
4MB L2
2GB DDR2 (2x 1GB)
TFT 14.1" BrightView WXGA (1280 x 800)
nVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
831MB TurboCache (64MB + 767MB shared)
IR remote controller


HP Pavilion Media Center tx1325ep
(I particularly like this fella 4 the touch-screen abilities & its goodies)

AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 1.6GHz
1MB L2
2GB DDR2 (2x 1GB)
TFT 12.1" BrightView WXGA (1280 x 800)
nVIDIA GeForce Go 6150
559MB DDR2 (shared)
180degrees rotating screen that has touchscreen abilities
(Can b used as tablet)
IR Remote controller
Special touch-screen pen


Asus X20S-2P081C
(I don't like the rotating camera, but if the rest of the laptop is worth it, then i think i can live with it!...)

Intel Core2 Duo T7250 (2x 2.00GHz)
2MB L2
2GB DDR2 667 (2x 1GB)
TFT 12.1" WXGA (1280 x 800)
nVIDIA GeForce 8400M G
896MB TurboCache (128MB + 762MB shared)


Asus Z53SV-AP237C
(similar 2 the 1 i own in looks,so beat up with ugly stick all over it!)

Intel Core2 Duo T7500 (2x 2.20GHz)
4MB L2
2GB DDR2 667 (2x 1GB)
TFT 15.4" WXGA (1280 x 800)
nVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS
1GB TurboCache (256MB dedicated + 768MB shared)


Asus Z53SC-AP335C
(similar 2 the 1 i own in looks,so beat up with ugly stick all over it!)

2GB DDR2 667 (2x 1GB)
TFT 15.4" WXGA (1280 x 800)
nVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS

That's it! So can any of you guys help me out with this 1?

I'm listenin!

the best laptop in those is Asus Z53SV-AP237C, all the other ones have
8400 which is similar to your HD 2400 but 8600M GS is alot better
