So basically I can't choose between:

Dell 14R-5121 :
Intel i7-3537U (dual core)
NVIDIA GT 730M 128bit 2GB
1 TB HDD
8GB RAM DDR3 1600MHz
14' (1366x768p)

Dell 15R-SE-7520 : (150$ more expensive)
Intel i7-3620QM (quad core)
Radeon HD 7730M 128bit 2GB
1 TB HDD + 32gb SSD
8GB RAM DDR3 1600MHz
15.6' full HD (1900x1080p)


Mostly going to use for gaming (Diablo3, Fifa, Hitman, AC3, Dirt3) and work usage. The main processing will be for gaming.


My doubts:
The main differences CPU, GPU , SSD Display.

Which is better a i7-3537U with a 730M GPU or a i7-3620QM with a radeon hd7730M ?

Is SSD a must have? Does it turns it on really fast? or much faster than 'regular'?

The 15 inch is more powerful on both the CPU and GPU. The SSD will help boot times and program load times but not performance in games. The 730m isn't a new GPU, it's really a rebranded 600 series GPU (probably 640m)

I agree. The 15r is actually a much better computer overall - it is better in pretty much every aspect except for battery life.

According to notebookcheck.net, the GPU GT 730M (nvidia) is relative better than the HD 7730M (radeon).
Just for that I would go for 730M because its a bit better, but I am concerned of the intel dual core vs the intel quad core, which looks way better.:??:

SSD speeds up system boot time by quite a bit. The 730M isn't that much better than the 7730M, so I wouldn't worry about that. Both of the cards are capable of running all the games you listed. The 15R also has a quad core CPU, which is WAY faster than a dual core CPU.
