The sleek black HP Pavilion dv7-2270us ($1,130 direct) is as much fun to look at as it is to use. This capable, large-screen laptop can double as an entertainment system for watching movies (not Blu-ray) or streaming media, but you need a blazing fast gaming system you might want to look elsewhere.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650: The Mobility HD 4650 is based on the Desktop 4650 architecture, but features a lower clock rate of memory and core. Depending on the core clock (450-550MHz possible) and the used memory (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3 with 600-800 MHz possible) the mobile 4650 can show a different performance. The current consumption of the chip alone ranges from 15-25W. Features Avivo HD video features.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
