Everything looks good besides that graphics card. If you're not heavy on gaming it'll be just fine for you though.

Looks like a very nice system aside from the graphics card. But it's not integrated so that will give your system a bit of a performance boost. It won't handle any heavy gaming but some light gaming is possible.

Well, what's your budget? I mean, it's not horrible but there's a lot better out there.

wel i just like went through the build process on hP. and you can select which processor you want ya know? and this is the one that comes in it. but for an extra 75 bucks i can get this, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P7450 (2.13GHz, 3 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB). or for an extra 125 bucks i could get this Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P7550 (2.26GHz, 3 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)... and i didnt really wanna break 900 dollars on it. After I built it and everything with the stuff you see above besides the 3 gb memory, iadded a 4 gb memory. And the final price was $889.99.

It's not a terrible laptop, and HP are quite reliable, but they're are better deals out there, let me have a look round. Budget of 900 USD right?

Well this is awfully close to your budget, but trust me, you get what you pay for. These are some very nice custom built systems IMHO. Xplorer X5-2900 Notebook.
