Hello, May someone help me please. I don't know very much about computers. I am looking to purchase a HP laptop with AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 Processor + 1GB AMD Radeon™ HD 8670M Discrete. I had the option of having that one which was the most expensive option. The other 2 choices are AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 Processor + AMD Radeon™ HD Graphics and AMD Quad -Core A4-5000 Processor + AMD Radeon™ HD Graphics. So far I have selected the first one I mentioned that has the highest price. However, I am wondering which option is best. My laptop will only be used for school and for simple entertainment purposes like browsing the internet and streaming movies online. I rather not take the most expensive if it won't make much a difference to the other options. Thank you so much in advance for everyone's advice. I also selected 8GB DDR3 System Memory ( 2 Dimm) instead of the 6GB (2 Dimm) and 4GB (1 Dimm). Pleaseeee help.

Best solution

for school and for simple entertainment purposes like browsing the internet and streaming movies online 2nd one is the best option however if you are onto series gaming all 3 wont satisfy you much however 1st option has a gpu which give u better option in gaming ...2nd one is good for your task with respect to budget

1.) AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 Processor + 1GB AMD Radeon™ HD 8670M Discrete
2.) AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 Processor + AMD Radeon™ HD Graphics
3.) AMD Quad -Core A4-5000 Processor + AMD Radeon™ HD Graphics

Thank you Vishnu. So for browsing the internet, streaming movies online, video chat, saving photos, saving multiple school files and the possibility of having many programs and windows opened at once while conducting research and writing papers (no gaming other than basic pc games like Free Cell and Solitaire), my best option is number 2? If we forget price (they are lined up most to least expensive), which would you recommend for my needs and for excellent performance?

I favour a laptop with the touchscreen feature. I just want something that works very fast. I'm tired of choosing laptops that are soooo slow and where programs and browser windows always take awhile to open and close.

Recommendations will be greatly appreciated

Ok. So those specs are fine? Should I go ahead and purchase it? I would change the processor to number 2. But everything else is fine? Is it a good choice overall for my needs? I want a fast, efficient and long lasting laptop.
