i saw that, but it has INTIGRATED intel graphics
whic isnt that good at all.

i would get the 256 ATI Radeon x1400 hyper memory
because intigrated means "buitl in' and it cannot be upgraded.
thats what is holding me back from buying a laptop.
otherwise i'd have 1 by now
i could always upgrade RAM later tho

Customize that $819 one with a better video. You'll still come out pretty well.
