It has an Intel GMA X4500HD Graphics Card, integrated (I think), 4gb RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 / 2.20 GHz , 500gb HDD.

Would this work well with Photoshop CS2 or would it be better to find something with dedicated graphics memory?
Thanks

Photoshop doesn't utilize GPUs to render and edit photos. That machine will do fine.

It does have a smaller display, probably with a low resolution, though. If you want to edit photos professionally, you're going to need a larger external monitor.

So there wouldn't be much difference between this laptop and a laptop that had 256mb dedicated graphics memory?

The graphics card will have no impact on Photoshop at all.

The first notebook is a hair better, with a 100MHz higher clockspeed - but the difference is negligible at best.
