Hey everyone!

I've been looking to buy a laptop for a long time now and I am willing
to spend 1200. After having researched on the internet I've come
across these two models.

I cannot find a review for the DV9288 anywhere on the internet but the
Inspiron 9400 has been highly reviewed.

Here are the specs for both systems:
HP DV9288

Dell Inspiron 9400
CPU- Intel C2D T7200
Memory-2GB DDR2 667MHz
Graphics-Geforce Go 7900 DDR3 256mb

The Inspiron (by far) is the more powerful laptop, but I dislike the
fact that it lacks an intergrated TV tuner, webcam and microphone.
There are is also a difference in HDD's but I am not bothered about

Does the Inspiron have HDMI out (I'm 80% sure the DV9288 has it)?

I hope people can answer my query :)

Dell no HDMI, just S-Video and DVI-D.
HP does, but lower quality video card, slower CPU
