Specs are detailed down below..... Tell me which one is better? Which graphics card is more important ? Will these laptops overheat etc?...

In my opinion the second one (M6600) is the better one:

• Marginally faster CPU (2.2 vs 2.1 GHz)
• Larger screen that uses a standard resolution (1080p)
• Looks like the second one has a better video device (2 GB vs. 1 GB of memory, although I'm not sure about the actual video performance of the first one)
• You get Genuine Windows 7 Professional instead of DOS (you don't want DOS at all)
• Bigger battery (9 cell instead of 6 cell).

    I really don't know about the thermal performance of either laptop, however.  You can do a web search on that subject yourself — just search for "Dell M6600 overheat" or something like that and see if it is a common occurrence.  The second laptop is heavier than the first, if that is a consideration for you.

    I hope that helps! thumb.gif

You don't want either if you want to game. Those are workstation laptops and light modelling. Any decent consumer grade graphics card will work just fine with video editing.

What you want is a laptop with a higher end mobile i7 (for video editing and recording), that has a "good" mobile graphics card, like a 680mx or 7970m.

You really want a desktop if you're serious about video editing or gaming though.
