I would avoid the Intel GMA GPU like a pest.
You also did not provide any information on the CPU in the laptop.
The graphics card in the desktop is not a highlight either, btw. I would rather go with a 9800, which is older, but still much faster than the GT 220 (which is actually rather low end).

They both sound fairly decent for the price. If you need to be portable, go with the notebook, but beware... Intel graphics chipsets are well known for being a nighmare for OpenGL applications.

Personally, I'd go desktop. Sounds like a pretty good deal (and you can change components much easier if you're not satisfied with what you have later).

soo... do you think the desktop is any good for LightWave?
o and is the graphics card the only bad thing about it.

in other words (lol) is the desktop worth the money or should i look for a different one

Considering the components and the equivalent price of just over $750US, it's not a bad deal. But shop around and do some price comparisons. You may find better... maybe even with a monitor.

For 3d, get an nvidia (maybe an ati card, but I haven't much experience with those) card first, intel graphics just don't cut it. I have a i5 laptop with 4 gig ram and an nvidia 230m graphics chip with 1gig graphics memory, and you can get something similar for 600-700 pounds.

I think you should be able to find a better laptop for that price, or maybe 100 USD more (if your budget allows for that).
If it absolutely has to be 18", then there is a Toshiba Notebook in 18" that has a very good Nvidia GTX 360M grahics card and a CORE i5 CPU in it. That one is currently costs 1099 USD at Bestbuy, but you may be able to get a better deal elswhere (or maybe a showroom model).
There is a slightly cheaper Asus available too (999 USD). It has 17" and a pretty decent Nvidia GTX260 graphics card and a slightly better CPU in it.
I think that you should be able to find even better offers, if you shop arround a bit.

Laptops are generally underpowered and overpriced so unless you really need it to move around go with the desktop.

We have two Dual Quad Cores here, the 2.66 is around twice as fast as the i7 920 (before it was overclocked) but it was also twice as expensive and it is noisy as hell, if I was buying a pc today I'd go with an i7 get a cooler and overclock it.
