Laptop Purchase

  Issy 15:18 24 May 2005

I am researching budget laptops for my grandaughter and would like to know whether it would be better to buy the Tiny Powerlite C780 or the HPpavilion 3000+.
The Tiny has more RAM and hard drive but the graphics are better on the HP.Are 64MB Intel Integrated Graphics good enough to play most games on?

Hi, personally I would steer clear of Tiny - HP are fine, but 64mb integrated graphics is not a lot for games playing. A graphics card with at least 128mb, perhaps a Radeon, would be a lot better.

No doubt others will come on in a while with their suggestions.

Hi all - budget price range is A£600 - A£700.

not sure if that is Australian Pounds or what, but I think the answer to that will be forthcoming
from Issy.

Have a look at the site I mentioned above - they have a good selection within your price range.
