Well, what are your planned uses for either laptop, i.e. gaming or other things like Internet or Office, etc...?

They are both terrible choices. Intel HD? It's only good for playing Solitaire. You will regret buying either laptops.

Not necessarily. If it is just for Internet and Office like app usage, it'll do just fine. I have an Intel HD card in my laptop and that's all I use it for. I've never had a problem with it. If I want to run anything that requires any zip, I just use the desktop.

I haven't used a desktop in almost 7 years. So for me it's the laptop or I'm stuck. Every now and then I search the web for people who have successfully upgraded their GPU but zero results. I think GPU is critical. I don't want 720p HD video (offline avi or online Flash) to tear when I'm watching it. I don't want a simple 3D scene to lag just because I went cheap and picked Intel HD. I'm sorry, I can't side with you on that aweful integrated card and I'm not duplicating costs by buying a bulky desktop, screen etc.

Well, it's a matter of how one uses their laptop I guess. In your case, I understand how the GPU matters to you. If having a laptop capable of handling 720p, intense gaming, etc... is what you like, more power to ya. But in others case, say, those who use a laptop for simple matters, I personally don't think it makes much of a difference. Not to mention, those that have a desktop or a workstation for more intensive usage.

Simply put, I'm saying that not everyone out there needs a suped up laptop, but depending on their use, a dedicated GPU, for example, may be worthwhile.

Ok here's my problem. I have firewall and antivirus running all the time. A friend told me you don't need AV if you have FW, but then that friend's internet cache was full of pdf and java exploits when I scanned it. My Nod32 blocks a website if it contains injection code and I'm happy my FW warns me when a program tries to contact the internet. The downside is that I have a Windows XP which boots up with reduced processor potential. How do I know that? When I re-installed XP on my new hard-drive, no AV-FW, it felt like a beast. So either get a good CPU now or comprise and buy it cheaper off eBay in year-2 or year-3.

As for GPU, it was an average-nvidia 4 years ago, now it's below bare-minimum. But my laptop is still running and I can't even have a proper 3D screensaver or watch Winamp visuals in fullscreen. I'd like to play that one game, Starcraft2, but that's not possible. So maybe you can start to see the picture. It'd have been wiser for me to spend that little bit extra on a better GPU or say to myself, those GPU are horrible & overpriced, let me wait. But then how to make such a decision, you'd have to know a bit about GPU architecture and from that be able to tell what's a con and what's value for money... am getting there :)

You NEED both firewall and AV. You might never trigger the AV protection, if you're lucky and avoid bad sites, but better to have it than not.

Which leads me to this.
#1, looks to be a HP, not a Sony because of the :"HP Games Powered by Wild Tangent," statement, and comes with one of the worst AV programs out there, Norton.

#2 come with McAfee, which is better than the Symantec butchered Norton product. It does appear to be a Lenovo because of "Lenovo Energy Management"

Now, I personally would not be happy with either for even games a couple years old. But, between these two HP and Lenovo models, the Lenovo is probably the better choice overall. It will probably hold up better than the HP... by how much IDK as I don't have a clue as to which models you are referring to.

I would definitely go for Lenovo. It's not that pricey but works really good.

Just buy first one, its more than enough for your needs, as most of the members are here games so they just can't see a laptop without ati or nvidia. But 1st one its fine choice
