I'm looking for a new laptop for general use (word processing, web browsing, watching videos and listening to music) and am currently trying to decide between:
1) Compaq Presario CQ56-110sa (£349)
2) Dell Vostro 3500 (£389)
Intel® Core™ i3-370M (2.4GHz, 3MB)
Genuine Windows® 7 Professional with XP Mode Installed 32 bit
Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services, 15-month
Memory : 3072MB 1333MHz DDR3
15.6” 40 cm High Definition (1366 x 768) Wide LED Anti-Glare Display
Hard Drive : 320GB Serial ATA (7,200 Rpm)
Graphics : Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator HD
Optical Drive : 8X DVD+/-RW Drive
Wireless : ROW Dell Wireless 1501 (802.11n) Half Mini Card
Battery : Primary 6-cell 56W/HR LI-ION

Am I right in thinking that the Vostro 3500 has a superior processor and hard drive, whereas the Compaq Presario CQ56-110sa has a superior graphics card?
All that being said, which one should I go for?
Thanks in advance!

Vostro has a better CPU.
Compaq has a better GPU.
It's not a superior GPU, it's actually a low end GPU. If you don't play many PC games then the Vostro is fine.
