His is:-

Memory: 8GB DDR3 (1066 MHz) RAM

Hard Disk Drive: 750GB Sata (5400 RPM) Hard Disk

DVD Writer: Blu-ray writer...... :love:

and mine is

HP DV6-3050TX
Specifications:

Operating Systems: Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium

Processor: Intel Core i7 720QM Processor (1.6 GHz, Turbo Boost upto 2.8 GHz, 6 MB Cache)

CPU wise,they are pretty much even.
4GB RAM is enough for today's games/most apps, there isn't much of a difference between them unless you work with multiple pages of heavy Image/Video editing.
5650M is more powerful than GT 425M.
And for HDD,well its a personal choice.

Thank you..........I will tell him the same so that he wont waste money unnecessarily :) 

and My laptop is running good but my desktop is due for an upgrade:-

Need help in Upgrading my HP Pavilion a6450in:-
Now it has:-
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
2GB RAM
Nvidia Geforce 7100 128MB GPU
320GB HDD
LightScribe DVD Supermulti and another expansion slot left free

Now I need to upgrade few components:-
Nvidia GTS 250 1GB GPU
LG Blu-ray Burner
1TB HDD along with older 320GB
Transcend USB 3.0 through PCI slot
and A TV Tuner through PCI slot
And a 500W PSU to run these instead of 250W factory fitted.

1.Is it possible to do all these upgrades?
2.Does fitting a higer watt PSU destroy the system?

Ps. reply
