    if you're not doing much gaming on it, it should be great. Newer cards may be an exception, but from my experience with integrated graphics, they suck.
    Core 2 duos are supposed to be some of the best CPUs, so besides the graphics, it sounds like a decent buy.

    Is that where your buying it from?
    Anyways it seems nice. I have a Vaio but that's about $1300. Anyways, the vaio suits me fine, really nice laptop. That seems like a good one, 1.3ghz is really fast for a laptop.
    Yay, buy it with vista.

    Depends what you want it for, seems like a general good all rounder, doubtful you'all be able to play any decent games on it though.

    Well, it may be a bit slow. I find that anything nder 1.7ghz is a but slow. But sounds good other than that.

    It would seem like that, but the core 2 duos are actually set to run a lot slower than normal, yet they perform faster.
    (AMD's been doing this for a while, but good job to intel for catching up)
