  1. The i7 is better by far. What are the full specs for both laptops?

    As long as it is a quad core i7 it should smash the A10 into the dirt. However the GPU is far more important most of the time. What GPU does each have?
  3. Dont choose AMD A10. It probably has prefomance of a i3 to i5. i7 was craeted for multitasking,gaming, overclocking and CAD.Or you can just get the best version of i5 as it will do all of that stuff anyway.
  4. Best answer
    At the same clockspeed a Haswell generation Core i7 CPU would be at least 30% more powerful.

    There are no quad core i5 CPU in the laptop arena.

    found this link which gives very specific comments regarding the AMD a10 being better for graphic/gaming use... and a better price to performance rating... read the article see if it answers what you need.
  7. If the i7 laptop does not come with a discrete video card, the A10 is way better at anything video related. The i7 is probably twice as powerful as the A10 in processing power. If the i7 comes with a graphic card, it is likely the best bet, and will also likely be considerably more expensive.
  8. AMD carries more packets at a time in processing power. Like two trucks- Intel goes 100MPH but carries only 7 boxes at a time, and AMD is only 70MPH, but carries 12-15 boxes at a time. There are times when Intel will outperform, but AMD usually is better with user output (total gotten performance out of CPU/APU, motherboard, graphics, etc.) Not everything is CPU Ghz anymore. Intel just markets benchmarks, which don't mean jack anymore. Therefore, at lower speeds, outperforms intel. Intel always boasts faster CPU speeds (GHz); however, they bottleneck on the motherboard and try to simply get around it by pushing faster speeds via hyperthreading/turboboosting. i.e. i5 is a DUAL core, with hyperthreading to try and act as a quad core. AMD makes all true quads. So, AMD found ways of multitasking better and using less power, but can boost to 3.5-5Ghz via hyper transport also. Better battery life and less overheating (big intel problem) especially in laptops. Of course, AMD can go into Octa Core and Intel only has 6 core... so AMD, who used to be part of Intel company became biggest competitor. Apple was going with them, but Intel's cookie cutter CPU's already had product line ready and AMD customizes all APU's/CPU's individually. High end Macs all use AMD/ATI Radeon. Check it out yourself. AMD is my favorite by far. I use in graphics and multimedia and always feel Intel has bottlenecking issues and feels slow.
