Questions & Answers for HP Pavilion Laptop / AMD A-Series Processor / 14" Display / 4GB Memory - Pewter

Question

G4-1215DX vs. G4-1229DX I just purchased the 1229DX

I understand the AMD is supposed to better at handling "graphics". How significant is the difference between these machines in specs? Is the average person going to be able to tell the difference between the two out of the box without any tweaking?

AMD and Intel processors are very much the same if you compare in class processors. The difference in processor should not be noticeable for most of your games and software.

answer 2
At this time, Hewlett-Packard does not ship recovery discs or operating system discs with HP notebook or desktop PCs. However, all current Hewlett-Packard desktop and notebook PCs will include a recovery partition on the hard drive that will allow for one copy of recovery media to be made. You can also contact the HP Technical Support department at 1-800-474-6836 to order recovery media.

This recovery information is an “image” of the computer as it was originally shipped and includes the operating system, drivers, and all software that was originally installed on the PC. The recovery media will not include an original OEM operating system disc. I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

This PC meets or exceeds all of the recommended system requirements for The Sims 2 listed on the manufacturer’s website, so it should have no issues running this software.
