Good buy for what I need?

Looking for a decent laptop with on board graphics. A little multimedia and some gaming (D3/Fallen Earth and such). I found this in the dell outlet and with coupons it comes to $930. Opinions?

    Not liking that used XPS Studio 16 @ $930.

    Have you checked out the deals on the new XPS 15?

  3. I'm liking that HP upgrated to 2gb on the video card! Thanks
  4. For gaming performance it's more about the number of shaders/pipelines and core clock speeds than the amount of VRAM.

    Compare Battlefield: Bad Company 2 benchmark with HD 4670 and HD 6770M
    HD 7690M is a bit faster than HD 6770M
