    Laptop A :

    http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/hp-pavi...87062-pdt.html


    Now the advantage of this is that it is realy nice and portable so easy for me to carry it to uni everyday. HOWEVER the reviews say that the graphics card aint that good. Now i aint that hardcore of a gamer but just wondering whether if this laptop can play call of duty black ops ? I was looking at the minimum specs here n cudnt work out :

    Much better laptops you could be getting for 700 quid, especially if you want to play black ops. That is a bit of a top end game.. kinda.
    Look more at the sticky on the buying guide and stuff, then look at some of the examples and use the websites they use to find your own

    Hmm thats fair enough then i guess =]
    Just saying, pc world and currys arent the best places to get laptops from, but i suppose if you do get a discount then it isnt too bad =]

    Then.. its hard.
    The second one, the one with 100 off.. would be better for gaming, bigger screen.. better graphics. double the amount of RAM , frankly 6gb ram seems a lot for that price =]

    Plus the other one looks better but still xD

    But. its over half a kilo heavier, plus with the added screen size, may make it annoying for taking around every day.

    Do you know a lot of people with laptops? ask around and try to find one the same size, and preferably around the same weight.. as the dv6-3150sa one .. and if you think you can 'deal with' taking that around every day.

    You may go with second one. Because i find more compatibility compare to first one. Also its has latest processor and upgraded RAM in it. At last it is your choice.
