  1. Im in the market to buy a new laptop. I want to make sure my graphics card has the Hardware Transform and Lighting on it. How do I find out? Im looking at a laptop with an AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 420 and I cannot find any information on weather this card has HW T&L. Can anyone help?

    Hardware transform and lighting is something that has been around for ages. This is just a guess, but I don't think you could find a current graphics solution that doesn't have it.

    I'm guessing that you want to know this in conjunction with the ability to game with the machine...? Or perhaps Photoshop? In either case you will likely be disappointed with the onboard video, hardware T & L or not.
