    I can get this laptop or $550 since i know a guy who works for hp and gets huge discount.

    Do you think this could run diablo 3 smoothly? 50fps at medium settings? only thing i dont like is the gfx card isnt the best =/ would like 4000 series

    its a nice laptop, i have the same, but with 15.4 screen instead of 17, mine is a little bit better though but hp laptops are very friendly to use.

    Don't expect to get too much from the onboard Radeon 3200, you might be able to play at a lower setting (low-mid) with playable FPS though the Requirements for D3 have not been released yet so theres no way of knowing yet.

    People seem to be able to play WoW at medium settings with the 3200, but D3 should be more GPU demanding due to its likely 2010 release date.

    ya this computer is very good for the price "550" since i got connections
    only bad thing is the gfx card if u could upgrade to 4000 series atleast 4850 "this laptop could rock any new game out there "
    i might spend the extra $250 to get 1gb geforce upgrade card with 2.4 ghz and 9600 processor
