    AMD Laptop Question

    Hello,
    I am really considering this laptop = http://shop.bjs.com/HP-15-6--34--Pav...VVviewprod.htm and would appreciate some help deciding.

    The 1 GB dedicated video RAM got my attention and the price for that exact laptop at my local BJ's is $599 after rebate. Sounds good to me.

    My main question is, will I be happy with the processor? The most intense thing I plan to do with it is BF:BC2 which calls for a "Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz" processor. I don't know about the real comparison for AMD vs. Intel. I'm running 2142 on a 3-4 year old AMD desktop and was doing fine with that, but want a laptop. :)

    Thanks in advance!

    That's what I was hoping! I thank you for the clarification.

    The 4650 falls somewhere in the upper half of the second tier. Should be good enough to play BF:BC2.
    Yeah, I knew I wouldn't be getting top-of-the-line. Thanks for the useful link!
