I personally would never buy an HP again. I've had horrible problems with mine, so do many people I know.

Yes. the processor, System RAM and Graphics card should be more than enough for what you need.

Re: Should I buy this laptop? :)

My aunt has a HP and she seems to have no problems with it. But I don't know much about laptops.

DAMN! 1 GB geforce, give me some of that.

Re: Should I buy this laptop? :)

Thanks for all your guys advice!
But I'm so confused! haha.

I was going to get an Asus G72GX but it does not have i7-720QM Quad Core Processor or the DDR3 memory.
And I know it has a better graphics card and stuff.

So yeah haha, I am soo confused!

Re: Should I buy this laptop? :)

I had an HP and I could buy a new one after only 1,5 years. In the computer shop they say it can't be fixed either so I had to buy a new one.

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

My netbook has no problems with Photoshop other than a low screen resolution.

Re: Should I buy this laptop? :)

For a laptop, it's quite good.
But HP is known for over heating (mine did)....so if you have some extra cash, I'd suggest getting a decent laptop fan.

Re: Should I buy this laptop? :)

I was thinking of buying a netbook or laptop, but they seem to be overpriced...£200 is the minimum Ive seen, and even then they only have trial versions of Microsoft Office and Anti-Virus programs, meaning another £100 at least to have a worthwhile unit.

My ipod touch does most of the functions of a basic netbook anyway...web browser, email, games, music, video...but I wanted a netbook for basic word processing. Any netbooks at a decent price come with the likes of Word, Excel and Access?
