  1. Hi.

    I've been looking for the last while for a laptop and graphics is one of my main concerns. Before I start, I want to make it clear that I'm not looking for really high graphics quality because I'm limited by budget, and on laptop you can't upgrade above the two mentioned cards.

    So basically I had been thinking about getting a Dell Vostro 1510 with Geforce 8400m GS, but just recently saw the Dell studio 15 with ATI Radeon HD 3450. It would cost me about £65 more to get studio atm, but will also get extra 90Gb Hard disk space, and a 2.1 GHz core2duo over the vostros 1.83 GHz.

    In terms of performance, I basically want to know, is the Radeon better than the 8400? Im not looking to play the newest games like crysis etc but do want to play some like call of duty 4, which i know works on the 8400.

    Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

    "is the Radeon better than the 8400?"...

    In this case, I would say yes
