Ok, that makes sense. So the only reason I would want discrete is because it can be upgraded in the future? Or are the discrete video cards better in general?

you can't upgrade any of them

discrete is superior to integrated

Hey guys. I got a friend who's looking to buy a laptop for $2000, or maybe a little more if it's totally worth it. I could root around in this thread for a while, but I know you guys are usually pretty quick with this kinda stuff. Any ideas cost-/performance-wise? Thanks.

2000 is generally a bit overboard for a laptop

I am considering buying a dell XPS on ebay. It would obviously be from someone with a ton of good feedback and never used.

For instance:
http://cgi.ebay.com/DELL-LAPTOP-XPS-...QQcmdZViewItem
would something like that be decent?

I wouldn't

with a good coupon you should be able to get a 8600gt vidoe card and a better processor on the Dell site.

Go to techbargains or somewhere and watch for dell m1530 coupon codes

So i need some advice, I just had my grad party and got a couple hundred dollars from family and such and my parents are putting up $700 for a laptop so i have around $1000 to spend. At this point i'm going with an HP and i want to know if this model, http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....2043322 55372
would be a good reliable little pc. Mostly i'll be typing documents and surfing the web as well as playing Counter Strike: Source. Also i have around 5000 songs to put on it. My questions: Will it run CS:S smoothly on high settings? Will i have enough space for all my music? Is it a good build for the price?

Thank you techs for the help, it is much appreciated.
