NotebookReview has a review of HP Compaq nc8430:
The overall performance of the nc8430 has been pretty impressive with the 2.0 GHz dual core processor, 256MB ATI x1600 graphics processor and 2GB of ram. It boots up very fast, never seems to lag and always is quick to perform. So far the only games I have played on it are Far Cry and Call Of Duty 2. I have no problem running both games on maximum settings.
