            Hi Amir,

            From the look of it, HP appears to be better in terms of performance though it comes with lesser storage on HDD which shouldn't be a problem for you keeping in mind the drastic price drop on external storage.

            However HP comes with GMA X3100 while Lenovo has X4500 where X4500 is designed to be 200% faster than the GMA 3100 in 3DMark06 performance and supports DirectX 10 and Shader model 4.0 features and yes, both X4500 and X3100 would give you the same resolution i.e. 1280 x 800. But on the whole, if you ask me in terms of processing, I'd go with the latter option since HP comes with a better and faster processor.

            In the end it's your prerogative, I wish you the best of luck with your choice

                Hi Amir,

                As the post subject indicated, I advised you on the processor and additionally on the overall laptop performance.

                Moreover, if you are not a gamer and would like to watch movies, X3100 would serve the purpose

                 

                Better graphics, better movies? Yes, definitely BUT then there are various factors included. For instance, if you have better GPU (Graphic Processing Unit / Graphic Card) but the movie you are watching is encoded on low scale, the result won't be that good and the vice-versa. However if you are looking for an awesome result, external GPU enabled laptops/PCs are advised that comes with nVidia or ATI GPUs on them, allowing you to view movies on a better resolution and quality and also enabling you to play better games.

                 

                For now, regarding the matter at hand, X4500 won't let you feel much difference as compared to X3100 in terms of watching movies, a slight difference and that is why I'd still recommend HP lest there is a huge price difference.

                 

                Best of luck!
