Definitely the second one; it has dedicated graphics for just a little bit more money than the first one. This will dramatically increase the performance of gaming, watching movies... and even web browsing.

thanks for you help sirmetal,

other than graphics would one be better then the other for example in the performace dept. i wondered what the MHZ that the memoey runs on has much difference as the hp is 1066 but the dell is 1333 i havent got a clue what his means!!!

also the i3 processor is the 330 on the dell and 350 on the dell.... any ideas???

the extent of my usage is itunes (alot of music) football manager, web and office programmes.

does anyone know if these will be ok for my needs

thanks again
