Dell 1330 From best buy
\015 I first bought a toshibe which has per my understanding a idependent memory for the graphics card. I didnt know anything about this, not a gamer. I was focused on the 3 gig ram, 250 gig HD, and AMD etc... Well I chose it due to itbeing so small (13.3 inch screen very small) then I couldnt adjust to the keyboard. So I went back and got he Dell 1330, I loved the appearence and the thin'ness, ad it's light, also has 4 gig ram, 320 hard drive, and intel core 2... So not bad hugh? Well turns out it is a bit slower than the toshiba on things such as writing web pages on intial load and refresh and slower with flash content, other than that it's great but that is a big part of it. So I was told now that it couldbe because this has a intergrated graphics card. They said because it shares memor for graphics it could be slowig the computer down on certain things. Also, there has been a couple times where video was a little choppy. \015\012\015\012Question is, considering I love the appearence and all other functionality of the dell and the keyboard is nice. It has a big ram and nice hard drive. Is it worth it to go back to the toshiba to get that speed on the loading of sites, or should I just keep this one. Is the intergrated card gonna hurt me in other areas later that I havet thought of here? Or is it not even involved in the problem?\015\012\015\012Lastly, they are both 64 bit, and the Toshiba ad no security software loaded but it had all the trial programs running. I bought the Norton on the dell, but they got rid of all the free trial **** progras for me. Any help?\015\012\015\012The spec sheets are linked belowe. PLEASE help\015\012\015\012http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8874104&type=product&id=1210378661918\015\012\015\012http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8897615&type=product&id=1212192350099\015
First keep the Dell, it's a much better machine. The graphics cards, ATI 3100 and the Intel x3100, are basically the same card, different manufacturers. Both have the same capabilities and the same overall specs, and I wouldn't be surprised if the drivers are compatible for either card. Now I know you're mot going to want to hear this, but go in and get rid of the Norton. Norton takes up so many resources is slows the machine noticeably, especially on line. You won't notice it so much on the trial version because some of the features of Norton aren't activated until you purchase the full version. Try AVG, the new AVG 8.0 has all the security you will need without taking much resources. There will be a noticeable difference, especially on line. It will greatly increase the speed, and I think you will be happy with it. Give this a try and let me know.

Our pc is not quite 1 yr old. Yesterday morning it was fine. Yesterday afternoon, when I turned it on it went into ''entering Power Save'' mode on the monitor with the tower fan running high and beeping. Dell said it's the integrated video card causing the problem and will send a tech with replacement in 2 days. Should I believe this? isn't it odd that I had just turned down their telemarketing call last week to extend the warranty on our 11 month old pc...

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0). At any rate this MB is on a Dell XPS 600 unit, which has died and I have a Raid 0 Array in there as my Data Drive. My question is, what chipset does this unit use, so I can find a compatible MB to replace it with.
