This. Bonus, you might get better battery life with Sandy Bridge. smile.gif

Yup.

Which models are you looking at? If they are around the same price, you'll really have to look and see which features you want. With SB products being newer, you may get less of what you want for the money.

I'm looking at the Samsung QX410 and the HP dm4x. But I think the dm4x is the best deal, especially since there are some coupons out there
What do you think?

What is the price difference for you?

I don't think there will be that big of a clock difference, they both turbo up to 2.9GHz, and the SB chips I've had never ran at stock speeds anyways, they are always 1 or 2 boost levels over it.

In the end the performance difference won't be too great either way, the best choice is to go with which product gives you the better overall package for the best price.

I just realized that they would be the same price, except the HP would be a much better deal. With HP's free 6GB RAM and 640GB HDD upgrade, plus a logicbuy coupon, it's a pretty awesome package I think.

In terms of specs, I would go with the HP. Has a processor that will use less power, and the 6470 is better then the 310m. They are pretty similar, aside from the GPU.

Now you would have to look at reliability. I don't know much about laptops, but I know HP isn't highly regarded.

According to some sources, HP is apparently one of the most reliable brands in 2011...don't know the accuracy of this though

internal parts are often the same across manufacturers.

Though I do know HP's build quality has improved dramatically recently

I disagree. They would probably be very close in performance and it really would be hard to say which would be faster, however I think the sandy bridge would be faster.
