Can the processors b940 or b950 handle full HD videos without any stuttering or framing. Or will it be depending on the processor for playback.

I was thinking of buying a laptop based on them which would be mainly used for web browsing and movie watching. Max budget is $450.

Is there any laptop that have a B950 paired with a Full Hd Screen???? I dont think so.

^^ - I would be using the laptop while traveling. I want it to playback the full HD videos that I will capture using my digital camera. The format would be AVCHD. I dont need a laptop with full HD resolution screen. I just need to view those videos. Along with that I want the CPU/GPU to be capable of handling 720p/1080p youtube videos. Hope that clarifies the question.

Hello there,
You can go to Laptop Price List for good selection. But I recommend you to buy Asus A53Z-AS61 Mocha (15.6″ 1366×768, A6-3420M, 6GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, Win7-64 Premium).
It is much better option than Intel B950/B940 with HD3000 for movie playback and it is cheap.

It is a Quadcore AMD CPU with fast GPU embedded.


Thank you for the extensive list. The AMD quad core seems to be cheap. Will check lappies based on that too ...
