rdr09, what exactly is bothering you with the HP?

Thanks, reflex99 +rep.
If I understand you right, then I won't be able to run these games/programs with my HD6770, but with the integrated Intel chip in the CPU ?

Duckmaffia,

I apologize. My HP is a much cheaper pc compared to the Sony but anyways the Sony has been solid.

One time a recall came down on my Sony's gpu cooler. Sony arranged a time so a technician can come and replace it - in my house! This is after the warranty was well expired. I would have been satisfied if they just send me the part and for me to replace it but I understand how warranty works with parts replaced.

Many of those games also support directx i think.

The main game i've noticed not running well is minecraft, which uses the Intel GPU.

It is a software issue, since we could manually switch them before a certain driver update, and now the switching is "automatic", and does not work for openGL very well. People over on the notebookreview forums are pretty angry, like sending mail to the HP CEO and stuff...so hopefully it will get fixed
