    Tough call. The nVidia is probably faster, but might suffer from the dodgy quality that nVidia had with those chips.

    So I take it a 3650 is comfortably superior to the 8600m?

    Actually I think the 8600GT might still come out on top, however it's closer and I think for most laptop uses the 3650 would be good enough.

    3650 > 8600gt
    but
    3450 < 8600gs

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...GS.3707.0.html

    this is good-ish for comparisons.

    go for a Nvidia 9500 or ATi 4550, either for under &#163;50.
