Default APU Laptop

Hey guys,

My GF will be coming home soon from the Navy and i was looking into laptops for her.

I have enough parts to probably make a pretty good desktop for her but she wants the portability of a Laptop, so i dont blame her.

Newegg.com - HP ProBook 4535s (LJ523UT#ABA) Notebook AMD Dual-Core Processor E2-3000M(1.8GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 320GB HDD 7200rpm DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL AMD Radeon HD 6480G
I was looking at this.

APU laptops decent?

Basic word processing, youtube, facebook, email, skype ect ect

slight chance of mild gaming like wow, runescape, MMORPGs ect. playable on low - medium on graphics would be ok, better is better of course but she isnt a major gamer, just if it arises, it would be nice to use it for ya know?


What do you guys think?

It doesn't look too bad, but what's your budget?

Hey there,

As a forewarning, the computer i'll be listing is the HP Probook 4530s, a very similar model.

From my standpoint, the computer runs fine; however, I don't put it under much stress. I'm a student, and for that, it's ideal: Great battery life (roughly 4-5 hours on 'power saver'), great screen resolution, keyboard feels great and the aluminum-brush finish makes the laptop look really nice.

The only issues i've had with mine have been:
-Laptop 'waking up' out of the sleep state when untouched
-Speakers having 'crackle' noises spontaneously (3-4 times a day when using a computer ~ 8 hours of the day)
-Mouse pad seems to have been placed in a slightly awkward position (lines up with space bar, though with the extended keyboard, I wouldn't have mind it to expand slightly further to the right)

Let me know if I can be of any help!
