Considering this laptop, please help with advise

I am considering purchasing this laptop:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6759745&sku=H24-15190


I am being sold on the price and the dedicated card. Is there something I am missing?


I use the computre for surfing and watching HD movies, as well as the occasional game when nephews come over.


Is the Athlon 2 series strong enough for that price? thanks.

  1. Hello ggsxt;

    Can you be more specific about "as well as the occasional game"? The HD 4250 isn't exactly known as a 'gaming card'.

    That laptop seems to get unusually poor review scores: HP ProBook 4525s review

    The slightly more expensive HP ProBook 4520s looks to be getting much better reviews.

    Other options in about the same price range:
    HP 625 $450 - HP 625 review
    lenovo G560 $450 - Lenovo G560 review

  2. Worked on computer retail before and noticed that AMD laptops tends to get warmer compared to Intel.

    How do you feel about the HP dv-6v? It's $549; I think you get the right balance of size, mobility, and performance.

    The specs are:
    Screen
    15.6" (1366x168) HD
    Processor
    2.4 GHz AMD
    RAM
    4 GB DDR3 1333 MHz
    Storage
    500 GB HDD 7200 RPM
    Operating system
    Windows 7 Home Premium
    Optical drive
    Blu-ray R, CD R/W, DVD R/W
    Video memory
    1000 MB Dedicated graphics card

    I think it would be more than enough of what you're trying to do. What do you think?
