I purchased an hp envy 17 inch laptop last March and now their is a newer model of the laptop out that has an ati mobility radeon 6850 graphics card. and the one I have now has an ati mobility radeon 5850 card I wanted to know sense i was considering selling the one I have now JUST to get the newer model just for the card would selling my laptop for the newer model be worth it just for the updated graphics card? If so please give me your thoughts on why and if not please explain in detail thanks in advance.
