    The mobility 4850 can play dirt2 maxed resolution and max graphics with 4xaa at 30 fps if that's any indication of performance.

    Dirt2 is considered one of the most intensive games on the market currently, up with crysis.

    I think he's talking about ATI 4670, not 4850...

    If you play games, then the ATI 4670 is worth it but otherwise you will notice no difference.

    if you spend 1699 on the 4670 you should spend another 300 and get the i5 and the 4850 really seems like a no brainer to me. this is just an opinion. i went in to buy a 21.5 and left with a 27 i7.

    What made you change your mind from a 21.5" to an i7?

    the screen size sucked me in. also being able to wall mount it in my home office was a huge plus. plus i'm a gadget geek i love having the best with my electronics.
