    Gaming Performance Value

    The one with the AMD Graphics card is technically better. Clock speeds arent important- its performance per clock. The AMD card is a higher card than the 635M.

    GET THE LAPTOP with THE AMD GRAPHICS...and be happy
  2. Get Laptop A, i think that would give you better performance.
  3. Laptop A will perform better for gaming. It's gpu is definitely better. You should be able to play at medium-high settings, depending on the game, at 720p resolution (1366x768).

    From experience, my old hp i5-430m with an AMD HD5650 mobility gpu could play crysis at medium-high settings at 1366-768 with 30+ fps. The cpu in laptop A is a little better and the gpu is also a bit better.
