    The time has come around for me to buy a new laptop. I want to make sure though that the one I get will play HD/Bluray movies i.e. processor/gfx etc is capable. I've seen the below spec for a decent price. Could anyone give me any ideas about if it is powerful enough to play HD:-

    Core2Duo T5300 (1.73ghz, 2mb Cache)
    1gb RAM
    256mb ATI X200
    80gb HDD

    If this isn't enough i'd be happy to take any suggestions on the spec required.

    Thanks in advance !!

    Graphics doesnt look too hot but Im sure others will confirm.

    I assume you will be downloading HD content & streaming it? as I dont see a Bluray drive or HDDVD?

    Sony laptops are shipping with BLuray & Ive seen some Tosh laptops with HDDVD.

    Got an Xbox 360 external HD-DVD which is currently running on my PC - if/when I get a new laptop I intend using it on that too - which is why the spec is the most important bit for me.
