Default Thoughts on Laptop

HP Compaq Presario M2105US Mobile Sempron 15.0" ATI RADEON Xpress 200M NoteBook

Is this a good laptop for the price.

Also, could someone give a brief comment on how good the processor and IGP graphics are.

Any opinions on it is appreciated.

Not bad for the price, would look for something w/ 512MB RAM. The processor is ok, not the most powerful, but you get what you pay for. And of course, the graphics are integrated, they will work for anything short of gaming and video rendering.

It's not bad overall.

Looks really well priced to me, but you need at least 512 ram, and I wonder why max ram is only 1 gig. Not that you need more but I hate limits, and there are situations like heavy gaming and intense graphics where you might want more ram.

That laptop's an excellent deal. Just upgrade the ram to 512mb or 768mb and you'll be able to do some gaming and have a decent rig for video/audio editing, etc. Not a bad deal at all, even with the extra ram it'll be well under $900.
