No, it does NOT have a dedicated video card. However, the Intel Graphics will share up to 1700 MG of memory, so if you bump the RAM to 8 gig, you will have plenty of power. This is NOT a gamer, but at this price, you would expect it.

No. This computer has Intel® HD graphics which uses some of your system's memory, not dedicated video memory.

Hello Anonymous,

The Dell Factory-Refurbished 17.3" Laptop will include Microsoft Office Starter 2010, which is a reduced functionality of Word and Excel with advertisements, but it does not give the full features in premium suite versions such as PowerPoint or Outlook.

I hope this information was helpful, and thank you for considering Dell.

Thank you,

Hello,

This laptop is designed for basic computing uses along with light gaming. Here are some of the important specs of the laptop:

Intel Core i3-330M processor
4GB Memory
Intel HD Graphics (Intel GM45)

You should be able to do LIGHT gaming, like Farmville, older games and the like. Any current games with medium to demanding needs will likely run too slow to be playable. Here is a link to the video card and it shows you the performace with some games.

Warranty details and operating system information can be found under the Specifications tab on the product information page. This computer has a 90 day warranty and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The price does not include tax or shipping. Software cannot be added prior to shipping. Many cases are available for notebook computers; search for "laptop cases" on BestBuy.com. Security/anti-virus software may be pre-installed as trial versions. I hope this helps.
