Hi, I'm purchasing a laptop for my little brother. I am down to 4 laptops.

1) HP G5000 Series (G5056EA)

CPU: 1.73 GHz Pentium® dual core T2080
RAM: 2GB DDR2 (1GB x 2)
GPU: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
LCD: 15.4” WXGA High Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800)

2) Fujitsu Amilo Li 2727

CPU: 1.73 Ghz Pentium® Processor Dual Core T2370
RAM: 2GB DDR2 (1GB x 2)
GPU: Intel® Graphic Media Accelerator X3100 up to 358 MB shared
LCD: 15.4” LCD WXGA (1280 x 800) BrilliantView display

3) Packard Bell Easynote:

CPU: 1.6 Ghz AMD TURION 64X2 TL-50
RAM: 2GB DDR2 (1GB x 2)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 5100
LCD: 15.4” LCD (Unknown)

4) Dell Inspiron 1501

CPU: 1.7 Ghz Athlon X2 TK-53
RAM: 2GB DDR2 (1GB x 2)
GPU: ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 256MB HyperMemory (Integrated graphics)

Which is the better one? For light gaming and day 2 day applications. And Most Inportantly: Which one has the best graphics out of them all?

Thank you.

I'm leaning more towards the Fujitsu Amilo... Am I wrong?

None of them are very good. All come with low-end processors and integrated graphics which do not cope with gaming very well. Out of the group, I'd say the Fujitsu is probably the best, but it still isn't that great. How much are you looking to spend and what country are you from?

Hi, well I'm from the U.K and they all cost the same price. ($300USD) These are refurbs from store returns, nothing wrong with them.

Still not worth it?

you should buy a desktop because you seem to on low budget.

I'd say to stay away from the HP. I had one and know a few people who have had one and parts just keep crapping out in it. In mine, the fan crapped out and blew the CPU.

As for gaming, it doesn't really look like you'll be doing any of that with those computers (unless you're a big fan of Nethack). You're probably going to want something with at least 2.0GHz of processing power, but more would be better. Also, look for something without integrated graphics as they tend to be worse than what could be installed.

Also, if you're looking at using Vista for any long period of time, 2GB of RAM will only just barely cut it. More will be better, but if you upgrade to 7 then you should be alright with 2GB.

Best of luck!

Hi, I was going to go with the fujitsu, but it sold, and I personally don't want any others so I give in. I'll skip the laptop and stick with the current 2 that I own.

Pentium 4 2.8Ghz HT and a Pentium M 1.6Ghz. Should do me till a decent spec laptop comes along.
