If youre not doing any gaming then the I5 would be the clear choice since its faster then the A6, the A6 is designed with general multimedia and some medium setting gaming in mind. It is also sufficient for business use as well, just not as fast as the I5.

This PC comes with an AMD A-Series dual-core A4-330 processor. Please also note that there are several versions/models of processor within a class/family (i5) that may run at different speeds. Also keep in mind that the processor is only one component that makes up the overall performance of a PC.

Question

Does the HP G4-1117DX come in other colors than the listed color, Pewter?

Hi I was wondering if this laptop comes in other colors than Pewter? If so, does Best Buy sell it in those colors? And would I be able to buy it online in these other colors or would I have to check at a local Best Buy for them? Thanks!

Question

Will it deliver great graphics for video games?

I love playing the Sims. I also love to download special content for my game to upload into the game. Will this computer deliver great graphics as I play? This is important because I plan to make Sims videos. I want my viewers to see the details of my custom content and in the game itself.

You will be able to play nearly any game that is out right now, but more demanding games (like Crysis 2) will have to played on lower resolutions. It should handle very well Sims 3 on medium to high quality. Look into laptops with an A8 processor if you want better graphics for a low dollar value.

This PC meets or exceeds all of the recommended system requirements for SIMS 3 listed on the manufacturer’s website, so it should have no issues running this software.

You may be able to use a 3rd party adapter to accommodate your firewire needs. However, please note that HP does not test or support 3rd party products and cannot guarantee functionality or comparability.

Unfortunately, there is no ExpressCard slot on this laptop that can be used to input a FireWire port, which would be the way to add FireWire to a laptop that doesn't have it.

Question

Is this good for a (non-techie) teacher?

Need a laptop for my classes I teach. I am not computer friendly. I need to open it, turn it on, and everything works correctly. I will need the Office version that has Publisher and PowerPoint & understand that there are discounts for teachers available.

This laptop would be excellent for a teacher. It has better battery life than the Intel processors and runs 5-15 degrees cooler. It also has much better graphics. Best Buy discounts MS Office to $99 if bought with your computer, they also discount antivirus software to $19.99 when bought with computer. I recommend Kaspersky.

Windows machines are generally all pretty similar in the way they work. Maintaining one is not too different from another, that said this computer remains cool, and does work correctly so far for me. Office you will have to buy separately. I think you get a discount when you buy the office (in store) along with the computer. Check to see if that or your teacher discount is better before you buy.

Don't have mine handy at the moment to tell you individual scores but mine is a 5.9 with 8GB or RAM. Believe the graphics processor is what scores the 5.9 which is the lowest score.

The emulator is optimized for Dual Core, so the A4 would outperform the A6 on some titles. Other times the A6 would win because of the better GPU. Laptops aren't the best at playing High level emulators, however.

This PC will play any games that have system requirements equal to or less than the specifications of this PC. I recommend contacting the software manufacturer of any games you intend to use in order to determine the system requirements for their software.
