Is Intel HD video card enough for BBC hd Iplayer?


Hi everyone,:)

Looking at this laptop Toshiba C670 laptop which has Intel HD graphics card, would that be enough to watch BBC iplayer HD programmes, or would it struggle and stutter?

Maybe look out for dedicated graphics card, for smooth HD video? :confused:

Not planning to do HD video editing but just to watch on-line HD videos. Would have been better if the laptop had hdmi socket, to attach HD camcorders to it. Maybe I should wait for their future 17’ models.:(

Not sure, what you guys suggest?

what specs? Toshiba 670 doesn't narrow it down enough.

if its a modern-ish intel HD, then it should accelerate HD video playback no problem. definitely worth considering HDMI out if you want to connect to your HDTV, although you should also be able to do that via VGA or DVI (with a converter)
