Depends what you want to do with it,if you not an avid gamer then any should do for normal pc stuff,if you do play games then forget a laptop get a desktop.

because of 380 celeron m and the 1st is 370 and the 2nd ones is Intel 910GML and 1st is Intel GMA 900.

What is your budget because I am sure I would be able to find you another laptop with more spec than the two you are suggesting.

im only 13 so i havent really got that much money i got 350 at the moment but i really want a laptop to do homework on and possible play countter strike on

i was wondering do u have to set up any configurations to use the laptop through and ethernet port so you can have internet on it

What is your internet service provider e.g NTl or BT or are you going to wait till you get a laptop then order the internet. I will have a look for a laptop for you on your £350 budget.

my internet provider is wanadoo and i have the internet all ready on my desktop but wanted to run the internet on my laptop through the ethernet port on the back of my desktop

You should be able to I think.

Is this counter strike source, or 1.6?

  Shutt1e 22:56 18 Jun 2006

condition zero i think that it only needs 16mb graphics
