Ok, so I love my laptop, its fast, plays games (on lowish-medium) and never lags real bad or anything, BUT, the graphics could be better, I found this guy that has a laptop that may be better, but im still worried about its performance, so heres the specs between the two, can someone tell me which is better?

My Current:
Lenovo Ideapad Z580, i5-3210m 2.50GHz w/Turbo Boost up to 3.2, 750gb Hard Drive, 8gb RAM, Intel HD 4000 graphics

One I'm Thinking About Getting:
HP Probook 8440P, Core i5 2.4GHZ Quad-core Processor, 4gb RAM, 320gb Harddrive, Nvidia NVS 420 1GB Dedicated graphics

So obviously the graphics for gaming will be better, but I wonder with half the ram and roughly half the harddrive, will it still perform better at regular tasks also?

Really my main worry is that its only around 300 bucks and been posted for about 2 months, and I have to wonder, why wouldnt someone have bought it by now?

So what if it was the same size hard drive and same ram, would the lower frequency still be a problem? I know mine is 2.5 with turbo up to 3.2 and that one is 2.4

Seems like more of a step down than one up. I would stick with what you have, which you sound satisfied with. While the graphics are better on the suggested one, on the one that you own the hard drive and RAM are clearly better. The processors are a wash in my mind.

Glad I came here, I was really considering it since the guy was telling how that one "would kick my laptops a**", AND wanted like 150 bucks on top of the trade, you definitely saved me from getting ripped off, so thanks, I REALLY appreciate the input
