    I'm looking at buying a new laptop hopefully around christmas time and I've been looking at a few which are almost perfect apart from the graphics card. I'd been hoping to find a laptop with the following:

    Intel® Pentium® Processor T4200 (2.0GHz, 800MHz, 1MB cache) or better
    Windows Vista Home Premium or better
    15.6" Widescreen WXGA WLED (1366 x 768) TFT Display with TrueLife™ or better
    3072MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [1x2048 + 1x1024]
    320GB (5,400rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive there is a 160GB Version too.

    ^^The above are al in an offer for a Dell Inspiron and I'm happy with everything there apart from the graphics cards and the choices which are:

    Intel Integrated GMA 4500MHD:miffed:


    256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4330:sigh:

    I was hoping I'd be able to keep my price under £400 but it isn't to be for this laptop anyways. Can anyone offer any other laptops that might fit the bill? Thanks :thumb:

    I was hoping for a graphics card that would be able to at least support The Sims 2 or 3.

    If you can throw another £99 at it, Tescos, of all places are doing a pretty good Acer.
    T7450, 4GB DDR2, 320GB HDD, 16" WXGA and a 9600M GT (512MB Dedicated VRAM)

    Thought it was pretty good for the price. Mind you, it's been a while since I checked laptop prices/specs
