Radeon Mobility 9200 vs. Intel X3100 vs. Nvidia 7150M
I am looking at upgrading to a new laptop. I currently have a Dell D600 with a Radeon Mobility 9200 graphics card. This card works ok except I can not use an external monitor, it only clones the laptop screeen rather than upping the resolution to match the larger external monitor.
Question is, I am torn between 2 different HP's:
DV6910US w/ Nvidia Geforce Go 7150M 1071 mb's shared video memory
DV6928US w/ Intel X3100 358 mb's shared video memory.
Will either or both support using an external monitor with the proper resolution? Any other thoughts about the graphics cards? I am not a gamer so intensive graphics are not a concern. Mainly just the external monitor issue.
