Looks good...the only thing is.... unless I'm mistaken, you won't have DirectX 10 functionality with that integrated card.... but I'm assuming you aren't buying this laptop for gaming, more of a overall good work notebook??

Be careful with pcdecrapifier if the computer has mcafee installed.

I tried that on a laptop I was cleaning up(the person never uninstalled the trial software even 1 year later!) and the program froze during the job.

Luckilly it didn't cause any problems but after that I just went through and did it the old fasion way. Of couse that could have just been mcafees fault since its worthless.

Actually I'm pretty sure Windows Vista comes with DirectX 10. I could be wrong though. :P

It does..but if the video card doesn't support it, it can't use it.

 

NVIDIA cards in the 8000 series and ATI's new 2900 series (and lesser version of each cards) allow it. However, they are only for desktops so far.
