My laptop is really old and I want to buy a cheap new one that will be able to play the newer games (like Call of Duty, Splinter Cell Blacklist, etc.)

Of these two, which would be better for gaming:

Toshiba C55D-A5382 with AMD Quad Core A4-5000 Accelerated Processor with AMD Radeon 1.5 GHz 2MB L2 Cache

or

Toshiba C55-A5285 with Intel® Core™ i3-3120M 2.50GHz 3MB Cache Processor


From what I've read it seems the AMD has a better graphics card but the 1.5 GHz processor is crappy compared to the i3. I know neither one is ideal, but which one would give me better gaming performance? Thanks!

I was hoping to get something for under $400. I'm okay with playing on low settings, I just want something that will be capable of running the newer games.

I guess I'll have to settle for playing older games then :(  But between these two models, is the AMD the better one for gaming purposes if you had to choose?

Thanks for your help. I got this one and so far it's been suitable for most of the new games (i.e. Far Cry 3, Splinter Cell Blacklist, etc.) on the lowest settings.
