(i5 3210m + NVIDIAGeForce GT 630M Graphics + SSD) vs ( i7 3630qm + Intel HD 4000 + HDD)

Hey guys! I am planning on getting a laptop for my university works.

I am a computer science major. I would be doing programming, video editing, photo editing, ubuntu, many other applications, gaming (Fifa 12, nfs the run, nfs most wanted). I do not play games like COD or battlefield.


Which one do you think will suit me best.

1. Intel i5 3210m
NVIDIAGeForce GT 630M Graphics
SSD
8 GB RAM

or

2. Intel i7 3630qm
Intel HD 4000
HDD
8 GB RAM

I would be having this laptop for atleast 4-5 years. Please help me choose the best. All opinions are welcome.

Thank you.

    In 4-5 year I guess you'll move on to FIFA 14, 15 ....... so GT 630M will be a good choice. Also if you are not going to be doing rendering then i5 will be more than sufficient for your CPU intensive resources.
  2. Choose the 630M GPU + SSD. It is more balanced. Definitely.
  3. 630m equipped computer, no competition.
