    Synthetic benchmarks can be misleading.

    Don't get an HP. I got a top of the line entertainment laptop from them and everything had to be replaced before the year marker. Everything except the keyboard, mouse, and speakers. Their costumer service is a joke too. Go with Asus!!!

    Sure, just watching at how much MHz that CPU has doesn't help.

    So the benchmark tells you how the cpu performs compared to the others? I'm looking at some HP laptops, and the deals I'm seeing have Intel Core i3 350M @ 2.27GHz processors. The benchmark on those is about 2000. Im also trying to decide which internal graphics processor will be better, the Intel HD or the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 (on a computer with a AMD Turion II P540 Dual-Core processor, benchmark 1500).

    Basicly, those two choices depend on how good the processor is. In your comparison, you'll most likely get better results with the core i3 and intel hd instead of the radeon hd with the turion processor, but the difference would be little.

    I got a new laptop. I like it especially with blue ray, longer battery life and larger screen size than my last one. However if I didn't order it via the internet I may have made a different choice as a lot of these newer touchpads are a pain in the ass.

    Get a proper mouse and just disable your touchpad. (If the problem is accidentally moving your hand on it while typing and shit. :p )

    Touchpads are just dumb anyway.

    I'm liking the higher end lenovo laptops which seem to be on craigslist in good supply. I see this lenovo T410 being offered for about 500:
