The 7200 is not a graphics power house (but is better than the intel integrated solutions. Performance wise, it is ok with older 3d games, but starts to falter with newer games (have played far cry and fear, far cry is fine, but fear is definitely not running as well as on the ati 1400 series).
But.....the Geforce 7200 does run cool, and with the Turion TL-52 (this one runs at 31w at full load), the notebook stays cooler, and the battery life is improved (the faster Turion x2 cpus use more power than the comparable intel cpus).
I was hoping for at least 128 dedicated + 128 shared. The latest review on Notebookreview.com confirms the 64+192 set up (http://www.notebookreview.com/defaul...ilion+dv6000z)
One thing that I noticed while using the laptop for about 10 minutes in Costco is, that it gets warm and rather quickly at that.
I am in no hurry to buy a laptop now, but the price at Costco is excellent (like $300 less than when configured on hp.com), so that is why I considered it. Maybe Costco will have the dv6000t version with the NVIDIA 7400 soon for similar price. Now that would a keeper.
