I want to buy a laptop.
I'm todn between two models.
One comes with a DVD writer and one comes with a read only.

The only difference (as far as I can see) is the graphics card.

One has a Intel 852GM and the other has a Intel GMA 900.

Erm... I've tried reading up on both... but am lost.     : (
Both seem to be good.

The laptops I'm considering are:


Any help would be appreciated.



Re: Which is better: Intel 852GM or Intel GMA 900

If you intend to play any reasonably serious games then neither card is
a good choice. Conversely, if games are not a priority, then both cards
will deliver good results. The 900 GMA is more recent technology, which
probably translates into an advantage from the point of view of how it
affects overall system performance. However, you are not going to see
any difference in the displayed image.
