The laptop in question is a HP Pavilion dv6-3037TX. I was wondering if this would be a good laptop for some general use (internet,movies etc) and also gaming (rather old games and some new ones). From what i can see it should be good for what i want to do.

Heres the specs:

2.26GHz Intel Core i5-430M Processor

4GB DDR3 RAM

640GB Hard Drive

1GB Dedicated Graphics - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 Graphics

LightScribe Super Multi 8X DVD±RW

15.6 WXGA High-Def Widescreen

Microsoft® Windows® 7 Premium

802.11a/g/n WLAN


Im experianced with desktop computers (building/fixing etc) but i have nver owned a laptop :ouch:  so im not sure on specs and other stuff.

here the website ill buy it off: http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?item=NBKHNB1068482

Thanks

Yes its a great notebook for general tasks and playing games(HD 5650M is a good mid-range card so it can handle older games on high and newer ones on medium settings)

I would not touch HP, Dell, Acer, gateway, sony laptop with a 10 foot poles. they will let you down fast even more if you play games:

waranty suck also. If you buy them, get an RMA right away cause you will need it.

Get an asus or msi: they are better.

Hi there,

This laptop looks like a great choice for general use and gaming. Before you make a final decision, I suggest you double check the system requirements for the specific games you will be playing to make sure this laptop is compatible with them.

I hope this helps.
