    Hello bakuc;

    Laptop CPU is better. HD 5650 in laptop lags behind the 8800GT desktop video quite a bit.

    Passmark CPU benchmark scores:
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+ = 1361
    Intel Core i5 430M @ 2.27GHz = 2348

    Passmark video card benchmarks:
    GeForce 8800 GT = 944
    Mobility Radeon HD 5850 = 968

    Mobility Radeon HD 5650 = 620
    GeForce 7900 GS = 608

    GeForce GTX 460M = 1,213
    GeForce 8800 Ultra = 1,152
  2. Ok looks like I just need to find one that has a Mobility Radeon HD 5850,

    Thanks for the reply.
