Do you really need the Intel cache? AMD gewts it done much cheaper, and usually just as good.

My laptop's resolution is 1440x900, has half the memory, and an older ATI Radeon chip/card, but with a Core2Duo 1.83GHz processor, and I'm able to get plenty of "real" work done, both design and web-related.
If you truly need more pixels, just hook up an external monitor. But yeah, 17.3" is a bit diesel for a laptop
btw, I'm not debating on cost or whether or not it's a worthy deal, just saying that it's plenty capable for more than just idle browsing and the like...
Heck, I've been photoshopping on an Acer Netbook!

Pretty good price but I don't see the point in watching a blu ray movie at 900p but that's just me. As for gaming, that Ati 4200 is better than the inegrated intel crap, you can at least play some games on the 4200 (on low settings of course). I play L4D2 and Titan Quest on my 4250 all the time and it's just barely better than the 4200. I would not buy this laptop as a gaming laptop, but if you need a lappy for other reasons and playing games is secondary then by all means...And yeah, that processor is kind of weak but for a cheapy laptop this one is pretty good.
Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.
