    Looking for suggestions for a value notebook. I see over at
    techbargains.com that the Dell is going for $699 and they list the HP for
    around $775. The HP is in this month's PC Magazine as an Editor's Choice.
    I get the impression that HP isn't as prestigious, but that aside -
    performance wise isn't the HP the better choice?

    I'm also a bit confused on integrated graphics. Doesn't that limit your
    system ram in it's speed and what is it limited to? Is the Dell integrated?
    I see the HP has a separate video card. Gaming isn't a big concern, but I
    would like the best performance possible - possibly for video editing. My
    pc is a 650 Duron - so this is going to be a screamer in comparison.

    A sickened mind and spirit
    The mirror tells me lies
    Could I mistake myself for someone
    Who lives behind my eyes
    Will he escape my soul
    Or will he live in me
    Is he tryin' to get out or tryin' to enter me
