In a word, no. Gfx is not suitable.

GFX? I used to be tech savvie but I got out of the PC scene a long time ago. Which laptop has got GFX? Inspiron?

Figured it out. Nevermind.

I originally thought Pavillion as my first choice as well.

The Dell is a quicker laptop with more memory but as a Intel HD intergrated graphics. The HP is slightly slower but has the better graphics card. The HP is also a lot better on battery power. The question is what do you want to do on it? If you need to do things with lots of graphics then the HP is your bet. If you need speed and processor power then it will be the Dell.

Personanlly I would go for the HP for battery power and graphics performance.

Does it have to be Curry's?
PC World do the same stuff as Currys and PC World are both different faces to the same company. When I was at Currys they told me they were both the same in terms of products, support, deals etc etc.

I'm looking at a particular videogame for my benchmark: Diablo 3. The requirements for it are in the 2nd photo in the original post. So yeah, HP is probably going to be better.

Here's a question for all. How do you compare clock speeds on different processors? Eg Quad core 1.8GHz to Dual core 2.2Ghz? What is the benchmark for comparing different cores and their speeds?

Sorry if the reply was a bit short. The spec you showed looked like the minimum requirements for a game, hence the graphics card requirement. Most cheap laptops come with gash graphics in terms of gameplay - onboard Intel stuff mostly which will show a spreadsheet fine but show it a game and it'll fold. The cheapest suitable one I can find on the Currys site is this:

TOSHIBA Satellite A665-12F Refurbished 15.6" Laptop - Black

Which, at £799, is a pisstake.

Something like this will meet the spec and fit your budget:

Haha! Those where the recommended requirements for Diablo 3. It's more of a casual game in terms of graphics and other gucci stuff.
The graphics card requirement is for video I think. Would you know the clock speed for Intel Core i3? and would it match up to Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz?

For games, it doesn't matter what processor you have if your graphics card isn't up to the job. All the work normally done by the gfx card is shunted onto the main CPU, rendering, shading, pixel processing - the lot. You'll end up with a game that runs like a bad Powerpoint presentation.

In simple terms, i3 is better than Core 2 Duo. But don't let that distract you from my first sentence.

460 laptops and none are suitable? Give your head a wobble. Smash the ****** and claim off your house insurance.
I've been filtering the search query to support the specs from the original post.

"Smash the ****** and claim off your house insurance" trying to do that bit by bit. Broke buttons on the touchpad, having start up issues anyway, peeled off some silicon stuff around the screen, broke the pivot that the screen moves around by accident mind you, one of the USB ports is unreliable and...whoops! I slipped and headbutted the screen. Which didn't do fuckall.
