    It has:

    1) 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3-2310M processor 2.10 GHz
    2) Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit
    3) A 15.6" (40 cm) High Definition (1366X768) WLED with True-Life display
    4) 4GB1 Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1
    5) 500GB2 SATA hard drive (7200RPM)
    6) Intel HD Graphics 3000

    I was speaking to a dell adviser and he was telling me that it would need a dedicated graphics card to play HD and multi-task but I'm slightly sceptical about that. Is he true? Or do you think this laptop is able to play HD movies and multi-task? Hypothetically, would you also say that this laptop would be suitable for rare to time-to time gaming or is that out of the question?

    Thanks in advance :)

    you should have resolution of 1980 x 1080 for HD.you might want a faster processor for multitasking such as the i5 or i7.I'm using a hd 4550 graphics in my computer runs hd fine and most games work fine (need for speed shift did run badly on mine).I googled searched the graphics cause im not familiar with that card if you plan on serious gaming go with a better graphics card.
