I am in college right now... When did you go? I thought full HD was just recent within these last few yrs.
But fwiw, even with HD3000 graphics, HD videos lagged a bit and took time to encode through as well.
used to be a college student lol...
In other words, tell us your age--immediately!!!! Also, provide your soc# and primary mailing address.
Quote from notebookcheck.net:
"The NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M is a relatively fast middle-class graphics card for laptops. Currently, it can be based on three different chips with different specifications and performance values. The GF108 version (a renamed GT 540M) features 96 shaders while the GF106/GF116 version (a renamed GT 550M) features 144 shaders. Furthermore, the newer 28nm Fermi-based GF117 variant will be available as well with significantly reduced power consumption. All models feature a 128 Bit memory interface for DDR3 graphics memory. As part of the Fermi architecture, the cards support DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0."
This is always a sourch of aggravation when shopping for a laptop with dedicated graphics. Exactly which version of the GT 630M does this unit come with? There is a very significant difference in graphics performance depending on which version you get. Not to mention variations of clock speed within each version. I can't seem to find out the specifics anywhere. Does anyone know this info?
Always assume the worst with these types of laptops. These aren't marketed as gaming machines. They're going to put in the cheapest components
